    I was fortunate in a member from another forum sold me a correct scabbard for $75 USD...but at least it was correct.

    Hi browningautorifleicon,

    The school carbine you have looks really sharp and turned out very well. Thanks for the pic and hope that mine will present as well when done.

    It didn't have the whole front done when I found it, just the front sight and nipped off stock. I had to add the front band and finish everything, including taking down the muzzle to accept the muzzle ring of the bayonet. When I found it I could see the "Possibilities"...

    Jim, you and I have very similar tastes in projects haha.
    Very nice job. Looks like the Carbine the military should have made!
