Type I barrel band, flat bolt, button safety and "W-1" marked magazine catch. Mounted with a later production paratrooper stock with 2-rivet handguard, low wood forearm, encircled block "P" on the pistol grip and folding wire buttstock with leather cheekpiece and checkered steel buttplate with very faint markings. With a green canvas sling and "U.S." and "ALLTEX PRODUCTS INC./1943" marked green canvas jump bag.

Rating Definition:

Excellent. The carbine retains 90% plus correct thinning original parkerized finish. The bolt retains 90% original blue. The wood is very fine with some scattered minor dents and scratches, heaviest on the handguard. The leather cheekpiece is very good. The sling and jump bag are also very good. Mechanically excellent.
