    Thanks guys.
    I only asked is to be sure we weren't pricing our own purchases. Which happens every week on one of the other sites. I'm going to ask that question every time because we are here to help the hobby first.

    I , we, want him to get the aid he's looking for. The parts are in good condition it sounds which works in his favor, though common markings which doesn't help the value a lot.

    Been away....
    Anyone figure out who made the Milled Trigger housing yet?
    And the Op slide with a P in a Square?
    Maybe a WRA Housing.
    The Op slide....... If you take the leg of the P and the I and add the Underline (PI) it could look like a P in Square ?
    Unless there really is a P in a Square marking I'm not aware of.

    If I didn't follow sales and Auction sites, I'd be curious as to what nearly 60 year old like new parts stowed away would be worth today.
    Nothing wrong with asking and nothing wrong with asking why your asking.
    Can't get all tied up by the written word.

    Pics would help immensely for a real value. Without them it's rough speculation. Not really imaging anything for the trigger housing. The slide sounded like Inland to me, but WRA is a possibility I suppose.
    Cosine26, on the stock you can look at the left top rail where the hand guard goes for an S A stamped. If no stamp It's anyone's guess who made it. People pay more for S A than unmarked. And they pay more again for HI in sling cut out.
    I haven't had a lot of success selling NOS slides at a premium and have tried several about 2 years ago.

    Charlie, here's another example of knowing why someone is asking is important. A new guy asks what his Carbine is worth without saying why he wants to know and gets a figure based on recent sales. But it was for an insurance loss. And the Carbine was an original Rockola. Insurance value is different than retail.

    Saying why you're asking is much more helpful to both sides of the equation than saying why you aren't asking.

    I do not have any good pictures. My pictures do not come out well. Here is what I have now.
    Imgur: The magic of the Internet
    All of my parts date to parts from an U S Army armorer from about 1964 when the army post converted from M1 &M1 Carbine to the M14icon..
    I shall try to take and post more pictures later.
    For painter777 the op slide looks as you described it with rhe "P" underlined rather than "boxed"..
    The "W" is stamped on the bottom of the slide on the side where the P/N (which is nearly as I can make out is not a M2. P/N)
    I do not believe any of the parts have collector value as they were circa 196o's replacement parts for maintenance of post issue M1's ,M1 Carbine's and rifle team NM M1's
    My reason for asking is just plain curiosity-nothing more..
    Thanks for the input.
    FWIW

    Bottom slide is an M2 variety. Typically can sell for more than a standard M1icon slide of the same maker.

    Above that is a braised (sp) trigger housing. If there are no maker's marks on the sides it can be marked on the magazine well rear wall (inside rear wall where the magazine is inserted) and will be marked with a .U. stamp.

    The same can be said for the other trigger housing.
    I like the color of the top slide. Looks like a type IV or V

    I re-examined the pictured parts.
    The top op slide has a hard to read P/N with the "w" on the bottom of the well and came off an IBM M1icon that I bought thru the DCM for $20.
    The top TG Assy has the letter "A" stamped just forward of the TG behind the assembly hole for the safety/mag catch assy spring
    The bottom TG Assy has a "U." stamped in the well and is laminated (?). It also has two grooves in the back of the well. This came off the same DCM M1 s above
    The bottom Op slide has a P/N on the bottom followed by "SA"
    Thanks for your response.
