A fella on another forum totally unrelated to guns acquired this rifle just recently after his father passing.The father got this rifle back in the 50's(?) and never shot it so it looks.It has some markings on the stock that seem familiar but not,the CSA got me wondering.I think the having the box adds itself to the rifle lending credibilty to an offical arsenal rebuild?

RRA= Rock River Arsenal? Don't know what the CSA is unless it's inspector's initials -- I doubt that it means Confederate States of America. Not on an WW2 gun!:rolleyes:
A great many M-1 carbines were rebuilt at the end of WW2. Although many probably needed it, they also had changes that were done. A adjustable rear sight replaced a "L" shaped flip rear sight and a front barrel-band with a bayonet lug were two items that were added during the final months of WW2.
Also a round bolt replaced a flat-top type. Not all carbines received all these new parts.
I have a 1944 marked Inland trhat has the early flip "L" type rear sight and the type 2 barrel band without the bayonet lug and the flat top bolt.

Nice gun by the way.
RED RIVER Arsenal!

Shoulda knowed that!
