In the case of the M1 Carbine, the guns were mixmasters from the get-go; I don't think any one company made every part, and one "prime contractor", Quality Hardware, made only receivers.
A gun with rebuild stamps and all "late" parts is more likely to be a complete, authentic U.S.G.I. gun than a Carbine advertised as "original" in 1942-45 configuration.
