I.B.M produced 346,500 rifles for the war effort with a receiver stamping of I.B.M Corp. As an interesting bit of trivia, IBM was the last company added to the contractors who produced the U.S. Carbines. Also, The stamped/brazed variation of the carbine trigger housing was developed at IBM's Endicott facility. The rifles in this group are all nice examples of original I.B.M manufactured carbines.

M1 Carbine Rifle, .30 Caliber, Semi-Auto, Original U.S. Military rifles manufactured by International Business Machines Corporation of Poughkeepsie N.Y... Auto-Ordnance of Bridgeport, CT, was initially subcontracted to manufacture all of IBM's bolts and slides in addition to 50% of their receivers. Difficulties at Auto Ordnance caused IBM to assume control of the carbine parts program at Auto-Ordnance, with IBM and additional subcontractors filling the void left by Auto-Ordnance. The IBM facility in Endicott, New York, produced 14 of the 19 parts used on the IBM carbines including the trigger housings. I.B.M. M1 carbines are considered among the finest .30 cal carbines ever produced. These rifles are all C & R Eligible.
We had the opportunity to inspect these rifles before purchase and each one was chosen based on our grading and criteria. If the rifle did not live up to our grading standard of at least NRA surplus good, or if it failed our mechanical dry fire test, then it was rejected. What we ended up with was a very nice small lot of M1 Carbines. About the condition - These are surplus rifles that have been stored for a number of years, in their original turn in condition. As such, expect some dings, scratches, nicks, etc, on the wood, and of course varying stages of bluing wear. Having said that, the rifles we selected had to reach a certain minimum threshold that we felt justified the price before we would accept the rifle and we tried to keep our standards pretty high in terms of our cosmetic grading. We also did a multi point dry function test to insure that the rifles would be in good working order. Also, while we never guarantee for bore condition, we did clean several bores and the bores cleaned up quite nicely on all of the guns that we randomly sampled to run a brush through. Frankly I think we have hit a home run here. Each rifle ships with an original 15 round magazine. Don't miss this .
