Selling Value 1943 IBM M1 Carbine

Hey Folks,

My old carbine had a bolt failure which damaged the receiver's left and right bolt locking shoulders.

I've not had much luck in locating info on a replacement USGI receiver so I'm thinking of selling the gun.

It is complete USGI parts. All but the receiver is better than good. I should mention that all parts have clear markings. And the gun is assembled.

Anyone have any idea of the value??

What was the cause of the "failure?"
Your analysis sounds accurate and, sadly, that happens a lot. It almost seems sinful to throw away round of ammo.
Possibly but you need a gifted welder and real skill with a file and dremel tool. Both sides of the receiver need to be checked for cracks.

Way back when the govt would sell "demilled" receivers there was a thriving business welding them back together I've seen M-1 and carbine receivers made with three or more parts.
