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.
