    You want to buy a M1 carbine ?

    I just ran up on this, some might be interested. I don't know enough about computers to link it here, maybe someone would help and do it.
    Google search: m1 carbines from midway usa,... go down to #3 and click on m1 carbines for sale. WOW!

    Looks like a lot of WW2 era configured M1icon's ????

    I've yet to see one with a flip sight in any pics shown. I see high wood stocks, type I and II bands though.

    Before Larry started Midway, they were gun dealers, this will be a chance to see it done right. If he has that many, he will make a bundle on these guns. These will go for probably $1500 for decent ones and up from there.

    Prices will be over-the-top. Every forum is lit-up with this announcement. It is funny how carbines import marked are poo-poo’d until a new batch shows up then the panic sets in.

    Not whining or complaining though. I will be giving consideration to purchase one like most of the rest of carbine world.

    I really wonder with the statement that none have been through a rebuild. There is no doubt that some do have type 1 and type 2 barrel bands on them but they use this to tease use by not showing any tops. Oh well time will tell as it always does.

    Bruce,
    Just curious and trying to learn, what would you be looking for if the tops were shown ?

    Words mean things. And 'rebuild' means different things to different people. To have a discussion, there has to be some basic agreement on definition of terms. To the best of my understanding, the term was first used in the 1953 edition of TM 9-1276. If anyone can find an earlier usage in an official OD document, please cite and include a description of the scope of work.

    If it should turn out that OD used the term only to mean the process described in this TM, then the examples shown in the ad appear to have had some lesser mods done to them, but not rebuilt.
    Pushing back the frontiers of ignorance, one post at a time.

    The carbines have been used mostly during public order operations, as a form of display.
    I don’t think they have ever been used (shot) much, but they were certainly in common use.
    My first memories of the M1icon carbines go back to summer 1990, during the soccer world champs. I saw them used by the Carabinieri on the heads of really “turbulent” English fans in the “Lotto” underground station in Milan. As clubs...
    They worked very well.
    I just took off, not being interested in trying them out.
    I was coming back from university, and got into that mess...

    Prior to the term "rebuild" in the 1953 edition, the term "overhaul" was used in the 1947 edition of TM 9-1276. Comparing the '47 edition's (Overhaul Flow Chart) with the '53 edition's (Rebuild Flow Chart) the scope of work looks to be the same.
