Great little rifles, my dad carried one in WWII, never owned one myself but shot a ton of them, lots of fun! Enjoy.

Here's a pic of my dad w/his somewhere in Europe winter 1944 (he said it was unloaded & had his finger on the trigger for "photographic purposes" LOL):

I have one too, I don't know what mines worth. Do you mind telling what you paid for it? Mine is in like new condition. Got some original ammo from about 1964 too. My father bought the M1 from the MO National Guard when the military switched over to the M16. Don't know much about guns though. I have about a dozen beautiful rifles and shotguns in storage. A few pistols too. They were my father's, most were purchased new between the mid 60's to the early 70's.

For more info on this great little carbine check out this book by one of the premier carbine experts, Craig Riesch:

Amazon.com: U.S. M1 Carbines, Wartime Production, 6th Revised and Expanded Edition (9781882391431): Craig Riesch: Books Amazon.com: U.S. M1 Carbines, Wartime Production, 6th Revised and Expanded Edition (9781882391431): Craig Riesch: Books

There were literally millions of these rifles made by lots of manufacturers and it's rare to find an all original one today due to arsenal rebuilds. They are outstanding for fun, plinking and home defense (with modern soft point ammo, not ball)mixed with important history.

Here's another great source of info and currently available stuff:
