Your carbine has been extensively rebuilt. The best place to learn the nomenclatures of the parts and their codes are in the commercial books. Larry Ruth has a very good book called War Baby, costs around $55.00. Harrison has a very good book for parts identification but a large amount of the information is in dispute amongst advanced collectors. If you purchase Harrison's book use it only for learning how to identify parts and their markings.

I had been looking for an answer like that Bill.Thank you.I realized when I got it back it wasn't going to be sold to anyone.I've poured over these trying to see if what I had was a rebuild,and when he put it back in my hands after all the research I knew all I wanted to do was learn about MY carbine.Rebuilt or not,I've learned the appreciation factor of one of these.Thank you guys for the info.I will be enjoying it soon.
