    Now I have three

    My Rockola came in today. I now have three Carbines. It looks better in my hands than it did in the pictures. Thanks go to my lucky wife who won $6,000 playing a slot machine(my cut was $3,000) I won't be sending this back like the last one. I was surprised to see a Type IA barrel band on a 1944 Rockola, and a missing dot on the buttplate( I had never heard of it before), but I'm surprised by a lot of carbine parts.The sling is real(I think) and the oiler and magazine are both marked IS, or SI, not sure. I've wanted a Rockola or IBM for a long time. I guess the IBM is next on the list. Any comments would be greatly appreciated, especially if they point out any flaws. Thanks guys!

    So..........
    She gets the W2G and takes her cut to buy groceries and gas, And you get another Carbine?
    Yep, I love her also

    I'm not sure on Date. Someone may be able to help with most of the SN#.

    Everything I can see is legit. Long tab magcatch, sling, CC, barrel band.,, etc.
    Stock nose just showing early band use.
    RMC used a lot of early parts late in to their production.

    Questions: is there any marking on the frt on your frt sight?
    Does trigger housing have the 9 spring cut on back magwall? Or is it a narrow back wall on both sides?
    Anything left of the MR stamp on barrel band?
    Swivel have aged look?

    IS lobbied to drop the IW, II, IU etc markings requirement to save time. After a number of attempts it was granted that they could do so. Just a Collector thing wanting a IR oiler in their late Rock.
    ** Just gave IR oiler away**

    You've done so much better this time around,

    Congrats, Happy for you both

    You always make me laugh She did the sensible thing and paid off one of HER credit cards( she knows that as soon as I croak, she gets to sell my guns anyway). So, the IS oiler isn't correct? I was guessing Inland made on the mag too. Looking down the barrel, theres a "T" on the left side of the front sight. I tried to get a pic, but my phone and this light come up empty. IDK what a 9 spring cut is. Back wall has a groove on each side. The MR is gone. There's a mark, but it doesn't look close to an M or R.

    I don't think you'll need to worry about a 9 spring cut on that trigger housing... It looks very nice and legit as Mr. 777 points out. How is the flip sight marked, base and leaf?

    IS who made oilers and magazines was International Silver. After they got the OK to drop the Primary code.... I (for IS) I (for Inland)= II. They just marked IS afterward.
    So a IS mag and oiler is fine for your RMC.
    Here's a link to mag Id's: M1 Carbine 15 rnd Magazines

    Here's a pic of a M2 trigger housing with the right wall cut away and left wall having the notch for a 9 spring. (I'm just trying to be sure your TH hasn't been modified,) I would expect your TH to be a narrow rear wall type II.
    See here: The U.S. Caliber .30 Carbines - Trigger Housing Group


    Your Frt sight is probably a TR, Look for a marking on your L flip leaf. Common staking by RMC......... Well, just look at these pics.

    I think I found what you'll need. If not I'll follow up this weekend.

    I only see an "S" on the left side. Nothing under or around the peepholes, or the other side.

    I looked closer at the frt sight there's an R on the right side too, but not the same lettering style as the pic you showed.

    Just an "S" on the rear flip , there's no B-R at the peephole.

    The ears on the frt sight have the line on each side of the "pin" hole, just like the pic you showed.

    There's nothing close to an M-R on the band.

    Riesch's 6th says, Unmarked MR, UR for 1,760,000(and up I guess) There's no comma after "unmarked" but you can't have unmarked and MR together, it doesn't make sense.

    If you have a close up picture of the receiver dovetail both sides and staking it should give a good indication if the flip has been on since it left the factory. Usually they are coded base and leaf for Rockola.
