    Were CMP M1 Carbines shipped with booklets?

    Several years ago I was given a M1903 Rifle that came to me in a CMPicon box. I got the box out the other day, and found this booklet hidden under the foam padding. Did the CMP include similar booklets with M1icon Carbines, and are they still available? This one for the M1903 has 29 pages and the copyright date is 2002. Thanks! - Bob

    As I recollect they came with a copy of the last TM the military issued for the carbine.

    They came with TB 23-7-1 (Ordnance Field Service Technical Bulletin NO. 23-7-1) Carbine, Cal. .30, M1icon dated March 17, 1942.

    And, the CMPicon Rifle Safety Manual.

    I should have included a date in my original post. I was thinking more of the Carbines from Italyicon around 2007. Now I'm thinking different books may have been included depending on the time frame. Also, were these military manuals and bulletins originals, or reprints? - Bob

    The group that will be released for sale on 1 Feb 2016

    M1icon Carbine Service Grade: R017SERVICE $685/each Free S&H

    Carbines may have been rebuilt and refinished at least once and will exhibit, in most cases, varying degrees of wear on many parts and generally nosignificant pitting on metal. Metal parts are mixed USGI. While all Carbines are USGI, some may have foreign markings. Muzzle may gauge 3 or less on muzzle gauge. Stocks may be replacement marked M2 type birch, beech pot belly or USGI walnut, but may have seen heavy use with possible rebuild or other markings. Each carbine will be shipped with an empty chamber indicator, CMPicon Safety Manual and a CMP reprint of FM23-37. The Carbine is also shipped in a CMP hard rifle case.



    NOTE: Carbines will not be sold or shipped with magazines, slings or oilers.

    A shoulder-fired antitank weapon? Must be a new m1 carbine on steroids



    At least the beast comes with an empty chamber indicator

    If one of those show up I'd be disappointed.

    If anybody finds a CMPicon certificate for an IP I'd like to have it back for my auction IP. I sold a Carbine in a box and it was under the foam.
