M1 Carbine .30 Caliber, Semi-Auto, Original U.S. Military Rifle, Refurbished To V.G.- Excellent Condition - National Postal Meter Mfg - C & R Eligible

MPN: M1 Carbine-NPM-REF  |  UPC: ITM376493


What a great get. These are original military contract, WWII era M1-Carbine rifles that have been either lightly or fully refurbished by our friends at James River Armory. We are selling them by manufacturer code and the ones being sold under this SKU were manufactured for the war effort by National Postal Meter. National Postal Meter rifles are considered more collectible than some of the other manufacturer's carbines because... A - The company originally made postal meters and was pulled into war production so how cool is that, and B.... N.P.M only produced about 417,000 rifles as opposed to over the 2.6 million rifles produced by Inland making them somewhat more rare. As a side note - Performance testing during the war by gov't weapons evaluators gave the National Postal Meter carbines the highest rating in adverse conditions. Rifles have and are being sold under their original serial numbers and have not been importer re-marked. 

These were original WWII Era M1 Carbine rifles that were stored overseas for years before recently being re-imported back into the United States. All of these rifles have had all of their metal components fully re-blued back to 100% metal finish. However, some of the stocks were candidates for a full refinish, while others were not, so in some cases the stocks were fully refurbished and in other cases, they were only de-greased and lightly refurbished. While all of the metal surfaced have been re-blued back to as close to the original finish as possible there will be some variances in the stocks and the wood even in terms of color and grain and some will be cosmetically more attractive than others. As such, we are offering a hand select option as well. See video for details and a more complete description of each below.
