Hello all! I am YUKI new here hence me posting this. 

I have a carbine made by IBM.

So my question is, My carbine has a special engraving on it.
It does not have "CORP" stamped on it.
I have heard on this forum that the first 200 were hand stamped, but my serial number is the 700th.
so I would like to hear what members think.

I look forward to participating in the forum.

Regards,
YUKI

Yuki, welcome to the forums.

first few thousand were hand stamped. Look at your few first numbers in the serial, they are machine stamped.
can you post some pictures of the front ring markings?

7-43 barrel is sweet! I have only seen a handful.

Thanks for the reply.


I see. You're right.the first four numbers are machine engraved.

Is this the correct picture of the front ring?



I believe the trigger guard has the characteristics of an IBM product. But it does have the Q-TX engraving.



Am I correct on the type£?


Does the engraving on this barrel prove that it was produced by IBM starting in July '43?

Thanks for the reply.W5USMC

Unfortunately, the receiver and rail are welded together so that they cannot slide!Cry

Welcome Yuki! That's a nice early IBM barrel & receiver. Too bad it had to be deactivated. Is the slide rail the only part that's welded? How easy is it to find an M1 carbine in Japan?

Thank!GotSnlB28

In Japan, you cannot possess a carbine unless you eliminate its function as a gun.

If you want to own a carbine in Japan, most people buy it at the following URL store.

Nice specimen of an I.B.M., you don't see them very often (at least in the Netherlands)
In which part of Japan are you? I work at a Dutch company that represents RKC Instrument (from Tokio) and Pro-face (from Osaka) in Japan.

But it does have the Q-TX engraving.

According to the Riesch, Q-TX markings are found on trigger housings used by Quality Hardware as well as IBM.  (pages 78-9 of 8th edition).  According to Ruth, War Baby! these were assembled by Triplex Corporation of America (in Chicago) for Quality Hardware Corp.  Some were then transfered from Quality to IBM.

Welcome to the forum Yuki! 

What a shame you won’t be able to shoot that Beautiful IBM, but just owning a piece of history is worth the price of admission. You can still hang it on the wall and brag!

I’ve had the opportunity to visit your country on many occasions, great memories from long ago.

Yuki, thanks for the link to the M1s for sale. I noticed there's an M2 receiver on one of them! I suppose there are different ways allowed to deactivate as I see that one has a plugged barrel.

Hi Matt_X

Thanks for the interesting info.
I see. So it was transferred from Quality Hardware and is stamped QT-X. I learned a lot!

Hi Fujita,
Tamiya, also a really 100% company. When I was young I built many model-airplanes of Tamiya.
