SA-ITM-S201 Carbines Cal. .30, M2 and M3 Ordnance Inspector Training Manual - Basically, this book dissects every assembly down to the individual parts; the publication then describes the materials, heat treatment, machining tolerances, tools, gages, inspection procedures, protective finish, and acceptance procedures for the individual M2 and M3 Carbine parts. The book is 265 pages long and contains numerous pictures and diagrams of the gages, testing procedures, and parts used for the M2 and M3 Carbines. Obviously, there are only a few minor differences between the M1 and M2-M3 Carbines involving the trigger group (and M3 receiver) - so nearly all of the manual would apply to the M1 Carbine. "Click" on the following hyperlinks to see several pages of the information contained within this publication: COVER, PAGE 1 - CONTENTS, PAGE 2 - CONTENTS, PAGE 1 - FIGURES, PAGE 2 FIGURES, and PAGE 53 - BARREL GAGE. Obviously, this manual is for those Carbine enthusiasts who are more technically proficient in understanding the operation, design, and construction of the Carbine Series of the "horseman's rifle or musket". The manual is plastic wire coil bound with sturdy polypropylene covers to protect the 24# paper.

TB 23-7-1 Ordnance Field Service Technical Bulletin No. 23-7-1

TB 23-7-1 Ordnance Field Service Technical Bulletin No. 23-7-1, Carbine, Cal. .30, M1 Dated March 17, 1942 - This technical bulletin is all about the M1 Carbine only!  The manual does not include information about the M1A1, M2 or M3 versions.  Covered materials in this manual include: operation and function, disassembly, assembly, care, cleaning, lubrication, immediate actions and stoppages, spare parts, accessories, ammunition, and (this is not a misprint) chemical exposure to poisonous gases and other chemical agents.  There is allot of "how to" pictures that reminds me more of a field manual for basic soldier use.  This is a pretty respectable 68 page manual for the M1 Carbine individual owner to use.  The paper is 24# bright white (102+) with the book being plastic wire bound.  This book can be placed on the shelf in your workshop for easy reference.  The book also opens and lays flat, so you can work on your rifle and observe your manual simultaneously. All the pictures in the manual are more then readable and useable - unlike many of the gun show manuals I've run across over the years.  I've priced the manual so just about anyone can purchase it for use.

U.S. Carbine Cal. .30 M1, Tank Destroyer School Weapons Department, Camp Hood, Texas

U.S. Carbine Cal. .30 M1, Tank Destroyer School Weapons Department, Camp Hood, Texas - This 30 page manual is probably one of the first "field manuals" ever put out on the M1 Carbine.  The manual covers the early "L" sight M1 Carbine, its characteristics, disassembly, assembly, functions, immediate action, stoppages, care and cleaning, plus has diagrams and pictures reflecting disassembly, assembly and deployment of the rifle by (apparently) tank crews.  There is no date on the publication, but it seems fairly obvious that this is an early WWII equivalent of a field manual on the M1 Carbine.  "Click" HERE to see a sample of Page 8 of the manual.  The paper is 24# bright white (102+) with the book being plastic wire bound.  This book can be placed on the shelf in your workshop for easy reference.  The book also opens and lays flat, so you can work on your rifle and observe your manual simultaneously.  This manual has some of the coolest pictures I've seen - for $8.00 it is well worth purchasing!
