    I have a few of the manuls but never got he M1 one yet. They are fun to read and I have one on Ceiminal investigations and The soldier's guide and Personal Conduct for the Soldier which has funny cartoons on how to act and not. I do have the M1Carbine and all its counter parts.

    I found a 1940 dated copy of 23-5 at a show last year. The neatest part is that the rifles pictured and illustrated are gas traps. There are even pictures of a model shop rifle loaned by SA to the Army for their pictures. Totally cool.
