    I've not used any of the colored IMR powders, but I picked up a couple of cans of IMR Target $11 per pound 2 or 3 years ago. The stuff is fantastic, loads and shoots just like Bullseye. 35W

    Somewhere I read that the stamped rear sights, as opposed to milled ones, were used beginning sometime in 1945. Sorry I can't state my source. You might post the pictures and info of you rifle on the CMP Forum or the Carbine Collectors Club...

    I have quite a lot of original mags as well as KCI. KCI's are great magazines and are all I use now. 35W

    Lots of good info on the carbine here. I think your barrel band could be original, but the bolt and probably the rear sight are replacements. I wouldn't worry too much about whether it's original or not, just be glad you got one and enjoy...

    Pictures would really help. It would be really unusual for a carbine of that age to never have been through an upgrade. 35W

    One of the things that amazes me is that in a world of inexpensive AR-15 (At least until the last election), people are paying the price of two AR's for a single M1 Carbine. I believe if someone could produce them for $500-$600, they would sell like...

    Even the commercial reproductions such as Universal, Iver Johnson and Plainfield are bringing crazy high prices. I bought an Iver Johnson last summer for $500 shipped, and even with it's issues (all of which I corrected) I felt like it was a steal....

    They're worth whatever people are willing to pay for them, and with three companies currently manufacturing them, selling them for $1100 to $2300, I'd say there's plenty of demand. Fulton Armory is over 4 months behind on orders, so the little...

    A subscription to is a great resource. There you'll find an abundance of 45 Colt data from all kinds of sources. Data is going to depend on the particular bullet your using. I cast and load a 288 gr. SWC that's a copy of the...

    If you're going to shoot it, I don't guess it matters. I probably would buy the Rockola if I thought I could sell it for a profit, then sell it to fund another and pocket the difference. In my collection of carbine's I have two Inlands and they're...

    Give two different people the same revolver with the same load, especially a load with a little recoil to it, and your sure to have two different POI's. Everybody holds and shoots handguns a little different from each other 35W

    ^^^^There's a lot of wisdom in that post^^^^ The only advantage adjustable sights sometimes have is they offer a better sight picture vs. fixed sights; a good example is Colt SA's. This is NOT the case with Model 10's. Their fixed sights are...
