    Audie Murphy's Carbine Number

    The carbine is in Fort Stewart's Wall of Honor. It's number is 1108783.

    It was Audie's "Wounded Carbine" that he fixed himself. The carbine was sent back for repair but recovered by Audie as he remembered the serial number. FYI

    If you go to the March Collectors show in Birmingham Alabama You may very well see it Murphy's carbine displayed in a nuclear blast proof case along with General Omar Bradley's carbine that he had during WWII. There are a lot of carbines displayed and presentation carbines displayed as well. Larry Ruth who wrote the 2 collector books usually attends this show. I even got him to autograph one of my books.

    audie

    the bham march show 2 years ago indeed had these famous rifles. Murphy's was found in Anniston. Bradley's was a folding stock. in addition there was a carbine competition where entrants submitted rifles for authenticity. checked and inspected by several judges.
    last march great display from Larry Ruth and plenty of face time with the carbine guru. this march...well there were plenty of carbines for sale!
    always a well run show.

    Great photos of his original Kabar.

    Ah heck, I got his original helmet laying out in the garage someplace.
