Pull the slide all the way back & then depress the slide stop (little button on top of the slide handle). It should catch in the shallow groove on the receiver underneath the slide handle.

M1 Carbines don't really have a way to lock back the bolt the way a Garand or M14 does.

Install the late model followers from the 30 round M2 weapon into yours. They will then hold the mag open after the last shot, until you remove the mag. Quagmire is correct, they don't lock open like the M14, Mi Garand, etc. :D
