    Default Looking for guidance

    OK Guys, you've answered questions before that have languished on other boards with out answer, and here's one more.

    I bought an M1 Carbine for Christmas in 2005. Soon htere after, I asked around and got no answer. What I'm looking for is what replacement parts should I have on hand. I presume the two springs I saw are easily lost/ broken, but what else?

    Thanks

    Buy every spare spring you can. Also, get a spare extractor and ejector+ the springs for them.

    It's also nice to have the bolt assy. tool. It holds everything together for you.

    you need to specify what type, is it commercial or military, they have different parts, such as op rods, trigger housings, etc.

    they have some different setups, but basically:
    extractors
    full spring kit, depending on type
    mag catch

    thats pretty much it unles you really really broke something

    One of the things that came with the purchase, I'm happy to say.

    Thanks for the list. Got the card from a vendor at the Harrisburg show, so now I can make a shopping list, and with the other link, I think I'll be in good shape.
