A friend of mine gave me his carbine to take a look at. It was having issues chambering rounds. I took it apart and it looked as if it hadn't been cleaned since Berlin! At any rate, it is an absolutely beautiful rifle! I was hoping some of you could enlighten us as to what he has. It seems to be all correct as it was a war bring back. It's an IBM SN #38875**. The stock is in almost perfect condition. No markings except for the (P) on the grip. The whole receiver is parkerized and is in really great condition. One thing that looked off was that the inside rails of the receiver looks like they are parkerized as well, not clean and smooth like mine. I know mine isn't USGI, but it didn't make sense that the inside rails would be parkerized.
