M1 Carbine Recoil Plate Markings
Got a nice little IBM USGI Carbine. It looks to be in fairly nice shape, shoots great. The recoil plate has a pretty strange marking on it. It is four letters, nicely stamped except for the first letter. It is either KART or BART, any guesses out there? No, no, it is NOT FART, I don't have a FART Carbine.
This gun is a reimport, the stock and action/barrel seem to match. It has the bayonet lug barrel band and the rearsenal flip safety. Not sure which recoil plate it is.
ALWAYS BRING ENOUGH GUN
