Accessories, Accessories....

Well, something is coming soon, but all is not ready - until today that is.

Hmmm...whatever could this box hold?

Why, two USGI 15 round M1 Carbine magazines and a sling! I ordered these from Numrich Gun Parts. The sling was described as a USGI M1 Carbine or Grease Gun sling. I never served in the military, so all I can say is there are no markings to indicate US issue, so perhaps it's a USGI style and not a surplus sling. No matter. The mags are genuine, one is marked "IA" for Inland, and the other one is marked "u" for Union Hardware.


























As can be seen, there are a few rust spots, but no apparent damage to the magazines. Numrich classified these as used, rated fair to good condition. They said that the magazines could have rust, dents, and dings. It appears I received good condition ones. No dents or dings anywhere on them.



























I'm pleased at this point with the quality of the magazines. The real test will be how they work in a Carbine....
