Long story short I was in the market for a M1 carbine and ended up with two. Now I don't need one so I'm looking for my next trade. I would like an AKM rifle or pistol. The nati ord M1 carbine is an early comercial make. It has lots of GI parts. The barrel, bolt, slide assembly, front sight assembly, mag catch are all USGI. More parts could be USGI but I did not want to take it any farther down than this. PM me if you have any questions. This is posted on other web sights.
