I have some questions about my Rockola carbine. The serial number is 4562929 and from what I understand means the weapon was made between Nov 1943 and March 1944. The receiver and barrel have the name Rockola on them. Bore is in excellent condition,
1. The barrel has the name Rockola in two places one by the sight and the other along side near the slider. The letter P and then the words SAMCO MK1 F1 or FL. What do the words SAMCO etc mean?
2. The stock has the following stamped on it. “U” “A” “N” “P”. Then in a square approx ½ by ½, the letter S and another letter I can’t make out something like a U or O or 8 or ?? I do not think it says “US” because with the “S” to the left I see a faint loop on the bottom on the next letter/number to the right. Can anyone tell me about the stock?
3. I thought that since this weapon was made in 43-44 I would try any get an original sling and oiler. Good luck on that one. I saw an ad on Ebay saying WWII Sling 1943. $40. but as far as I can tell the year 1943 is now where on that sling. Where can I buy an original WWII carbine sling?
Thank you for your time.
