    they just started selling what looks like all the magazines too. when I looked last week midwayusa had none. now that have NOS in originall packaging for $50, and various used.
    Possibly more, I think that’s why they still have some listed if you do a search under m1 carbine. They all show unavailable but I was able to order a G-VG national postal meter without bayonet lug and a G-VG Underwood with bayonet lug this evening. If they’re are dogs, I won’t have any trouble getting my money back in my area. We’ll see if they ship or not.

    Looks like the Midway carbines are starting to hit the secondary market. Somewhat interesting screw in the front barrel band.

    That’s what Bubba does when his band threads are stripped. Looks like stainless steel maybe….a quality replacement and I don’t mean QH.

    So they're just going to call them "push button safety" from now on?

    I figured there would be a lot of buying, parts swapping to "complete" other rifles, and dumping the rest on the market.

    O.K. I finally got around to cleaning up my Midway "good to very good" Winchester.
    Ser # 11385XX . The stock is "Peterson Bros Underwood" with PU stamped in the sling well. No other markings that I can see. I am replacing it with an I cut stock from Numrich anyway as I already have that and want to use it. The Hand guard is a two rivet stamped I.O. Inland I think. All action parts seem to be Winchester except the bolt which is an Inland bolt with I.O. and a sideways 2 stamped on it .
    I'm thinking the metal has been refinished as there in no wear on any parts and it has a dark black park finish.
    The gun was very dirty on the outside but mostly a coat of dust and oil. Inside everything was covered with a brown smelly oil that must have worked as there is no rust anywhere.
    After putting it in the new stock, it looks very much like a new gun. I'm not a collector and I intend to spend a lot of time with it at the range. I'm a little disappointed that it didn't have a Winchester stock and bolt but a lot of time has passed since it left the factory and I'm sure there is much history we will never know about.

    Here it is in it's new stock and hand guard. Numrich stock was a perfect fit.

    Nice stock!

    When they tell you to behave, they always forget to specify whether to behave well or badly!
