    I have recently joined and had a couple other posts similar to this one so I will just cut to it.
    I have this IBM M1 Carbine that I am looking to sell but I am not sure what it’s value is, i will post some pictures. I have not been able to break it down and check which parts are original and not but the rifle is in excellent condition. Any ideas about the value 1) if it’s all original parts, or 2) if it is a rebuild?
    Serial # 3762xxx

    The little I know, which is not much. Don't be worried that it's not all IBM, these were thrown together with what ever parts were at hand. You have a really nice M1, but not a 100% IBM. Value somewhere $900-$1200, maybe a little more to the right guy. Big Tulsa show is where I would sale it.

    It’s a rebuild, with the bayonet lug and adjustable rear sight. At least it doesn’t have the M2 pot-bellied stock.

    As a former IBM employee I was always intrigued by the novelty of an IBM Carbine. I'd like to own one just for grins, but the price has always deterred me...

    I'd agree with Jimmy's valuation above, $900-$1000 being closer to the price that you'd most likely get if you decide to sell it locally.

    G wiz about 12 companies build the M1 with about 26 subcontractors making parts ,no one company made all the parts so no one made a 100% M1. All the guns were rebuilt at a depot after the war with on hand parts, in the field on hand parts( new or from damaged guns) was used. the only true 100% M1 would be the prototype Win M1

    I've had two IBM. I shouldn't have sold either.
