Notice the GI in the center of the picture, with the Garand on his shoulder . . . .

The clip of cartridges on his chest has the “top” cartridge loaded on the LEFT.

I thought by this time (1945) factory loaded clips had the top cartridge on the RIGHT!

And below that appears to be an RSG stock.

Ten,
I'm thinking a M-U Underwood stock vs. WRA. The M-U's can fool you.. they have me a number of times. Might explain the T 4 housing (?)
And agree 'Sitting Guy' has a RSG stock. Can't deny that Coke bottle profile.
Can you see that mark across the barrel band spring on Sitting guys stock?
I had one come in that had a big staple in the same spot. IIRC it was a NPM and stock. Purchased directly from the Veterans Widow.
Thing was it wasn't cracked..... Could only guess, my best WAG was to stop a rattling hand guard ?

Later,

Yeah, I saw it but didn't try to ID what it was. Haven't seen it before.

The M-U stocks you're right about but the ones I have are thick, though. They will fool you for certain for Winchester, but that one appears thin-thin-thin all the way to the band. Was thinking it's a swapped stock and not an original config Carbine anymore.

You know more about stocks than I do. But that's my guess.

Thats all either of us can do is guess and looking at a old picture to do that.
I do believe spot on about the Irwin stock.

You taught me the tell on Win stocks in the finger grip bulge area, but we can't see that clearly.

One thing is for certain is the wear on his boots. Look at the wear on the sole. It's thick but smooth.

Great photo. Marine on right has flag draped over his shoulder. Can't imagine running around being shot at with an explosive fuel tank on hour back.

Is that a 5th carbine laying behind them on the right? Looks like handguard.

Day 10




This photo should generate a good discussion.  Don’t know any additional information about its origin.  Only kept it because of unusual bayonet attachment.  Comments?

Another great picture. Double digits days in a row!

A type 1 band and flip sight? How the heck is the bayonet attached to the carbine?

I’ve seen the bolt-on bayo lugs on carbines before in pictures. Maybe on a Bavarian. That type of lug is quite common on Mini14 LEA models with flash-hiders, but we all know that predates any Mini14, but I have seen it on carbines.

I once had an Inland with type I band someone brazed (sp) a bayo lug onto. It was well done but different than the one pictured above. Somewhere on Milsurps from 6 yrs ago or so is a picture of that setup. Mine went to Vermont.
