    Went to the gunshow yesterday and bought a few things. This one was the best I believe. 1943 postal meter m1 carbine, canvass bag and bayonet bundle. Everything is original but the stock is refurbished. Only other choice was a GM but all original. Decided on this one because my research on these showed that postal meter was responsible for only 6.8% of production. Thanks for reading guys.

    I should have a few 30 round clips around somewhere.. Is the oiler still inside the stock held by the sling perhaps or any "Painted" markings on the stock ??

    Nice KW refurb!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    Oiler isn't there. I will check for markings.

    Only thing I found on the stock was this... looks like some kind of writing or blemish..

    I had always been told that the 15 round clip as shown was the proper mag for the semi-autos. The 30 round bananas were for the select fire M-2's. I tried several bananas in my Inland Division and they always jammed like Hell, but the straight wall 15's fired smooth as silk.
