Have you seen Ruth's book(s) on the M1 ( War Baby) ?  Probably one of the most extensive research tomes on any military rifle .

If youre really dying for information on the carbine the Carbine Club Newsletters are where its at. They were produced for nearly 40 years and there are 384 issues. Over 3,000 pages of information. Great information and when you start at newsletter number one its interesting because some information that you know as common knowledge hasnt been discovered yet and comes up later down the line.

The Larry Ruth books are very good as well. War Baby i is about usgi carbines, war baby II is about commercial carbines and accessories and war baby III is information correcting I and II and wont make sense unless you own those two.
