Grand pop's rafters must be remarkably clean and dry. It's in excellent condition. The bandoleer with it?
It's not usual for Carbines to have mixtures of parts. 99.99% of all Carbines went through an arsenal rebuild after W.W. II. That one either did not or it was returned, at considerable expense, to war time configuration.
There's no such thing as an "all correct" Carbine as none of the manufacturers made all the parts. Parts, not all of which were marked in any way, were made by literally 100's of small shops all over the Eastern U.S. Inland, for example, only made 9 of the parts, including the receiver. Rock-Ola made 13 of 'em.
Rummage around here for boat loads of info on Carbines.
