New to me Amnesty registered M1 (M2) carbine with original paper work.  Neat gun.  Has numerous Rock-ola matching parts including the barrel, bolt, , rear sight and stock lug.  Haven't been thru the trigger group yet.  

 

The gun was purchased back in the day for $17.50 and shipped for $2.50... set the original owner back a whopping $20 bucks!  Came via the NRA out of Anniston AL.  

 

It is currently in a M2 stock with matching HI markings.  All in all a very good looking M1.  The original owner Amnesty registered it in Nov 1968 and I have that paperwork as well.

Sold as an M1, then thoughtfully the guy registered it as a MG in 68!  Wonder when he finally gathered up the M2 parts?  I like the statement about how the sale is final and you can't send it back to the .gov for repairs.  If it takes 6 months to process a form, I do wonder how long it would take them to do an actual repair on a firearm and return it?
