This is an example of a post WWII production M1 Carbine that was manufactured by Alpine Industries which has been converted to an M2 pattern fully automatic class III/NFA weapon. It has the standard markings on the front receiver ring, while the markings on the rear of the receiver have been partially polished off except for the "INE" in Alpine. It has been stamped with serial number on the front flat in front of the rear sight. The barrel is unmarked and it has been fitted with a set of M2 fully automatic conversion parts that are a mix of some military parts and commercial parts. The side of the trigger housing is stamped "SA" indicating it was a Korean War trigger housing with a HI marked hammer. It is fitted with a "U" marked Underwood round M2 bolt, and correct "A" marked selector switch. It has a unmarked type III barrel band, a "SS" marked flip safety and a "M" marked M2 magazine release. It is fitted with a commercial M1A1 folding paratrooper type stock, and a two rivet handguard. It also comes with an extra 30-round magazine.
Fine as refinished with 85% of the post war commercial blue finish still remaining overall, edge and high spot wear, some minor light pitting on top of the receiver ring, and a mix of parkerized finish on some of the military parts. The stock is in very good condition with chips, scuffs, and a dark brown matching walnut color overall. Note: This weapon is a National Firearms Act (NFA), fully transferable Class 3, which is registered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, (BATFE) under the provisions of 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44 and 27 CFR part 478.
