OH! MY! I didn't know those were a rare collectable! I just sold one almost like that for $35! I think I made a big mistake!

A cartoon from Life Magazine 1944. Good to see them having fun with themselves.

Two bidders were interested in this one!
I hope they were not thinking the numbers inside the stock was the ink we see on some USGI stocks as it is a commercial stock.

What is this one, the famous "Alligator" pattern stock used in swamp warfare?

"Surplus US M1 Carbine Sling Gun Strap Origonal"
Sellers description: "Used M1 caribe sling. Dated May 52 also marked MRT."

Maybe they should have said also marked MRT and MRT and MRT

Another great sling on EBay! And only $329!

Seller's description:
"For sale here is an early WWII U.S. khaki C-Tip M1 Carbine 1943 sling .. The sling is in excellent non-frayed condition. These early tan slings have always been hard to find, and this sling is a nice one. Absolutely 100% guaranteed to be an original."

Sometimes a seller sees a carbine part sell for $$$$ and they ask $$$$ without knowing why that part got what it did, and they assume their item must have the same value.

I hope the following was listed with good intent and may not know just what gems they have

"All Rockola M1 Carbine Complete Trigger Group in great shape."

How many Rockola parts can you count?

I have been watching that trigger group for quite a while. Surprised some sucker hasn't bit the hook yet. Surprised the seller didn't put in a BR hammer and claim it was Rock-Ola as well. That said, I think I remember someone paying something like $400 or more for a stripped stamped Rock-Ola trigger housing on E-bay a while back.

So Mike, what is your parts count?

The one that sold I believe was original finish and only had one hammer marking.

I don't like the look of the stamping on the hammer. I think there may only be two Rock-Ola parts on this trigger group and the trigger. The picture of the trigger housing is blurry and it even kind of a mangled ROCK-OLA stamp on that housing. It is a "complete" trigger group, but in no way "all Rock-Ola".

Looking again, the hammer looks like it maybe a rollermillseast special.

Today we bring you another variation of a stock with a interesting "RSG" in the slingwell.

Is this for SG or S'G'? I cannot make out the additional numbers and or letters in the slingwell

That CC looks very close to a real prime makers stamp.

Now if only the Jewel Bros could step back in time and see whats been done to their product.

I seen a Carbine with this recently sell on GB. It was stamped forward of the wrist on the left side.
