Hello, I have an IBM M1 30 cal. 9-43 on barrel. Has a" P" on bottom of wrist. Also has A A P on the left side of wrist. Has the bayonet lug, has the adj peep sight. Ser #1782xxx. Cant make out what is on the receiver. Looks like IR something SEN. This gun is as near 100% condition as I have ever seen. Looks like new. Has been in my family for over 40years. I can't get photos to upload. Just woundering a estimated value. Thanks

hello,,sounds like a typical rebuild carbine from proably the 60"s,,in the 60's these were available for around 70 bucks as military surplus ,,the rear site and bayo lug were late war updates ,,is the barrel an ibm barrel or is it marked with a another manufacture? ,,eg inland or underwood ..ect.. ? it's value would be in the 500-600 range typically if in good condition,,..it could bring a bit more to the right buyer but the prices i've given are what i see mixed parts carbines selling for at the shows lately..

An excellent condition IBM rebuild should easily get $750 these days.

thats always a plus when the barrel matches ,,and any other ibm parts would also bring the collectors intrest up a little ,,but theres alot of carbines out there these days ,and the collectors look for correct carbines when there buying at the higher ends of the value ranges in my part of the country ..the cmp stores have sold alot of carbines outa there military stockpiles and the carbine market is kinda stabilized a little ,,but any milsurp is a good investment these days and seems more guys are buying the old battle rifles over the newer sporting rifles ,,

The fact that the CMP is out of carbines is why the gun is worth a little more.

If you want an accurate value, please post photos.
