Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Alpine Manufacturing -- M1 Carbine .30 Caliber M1 Carbine W/ Factory Scope

Make: Alpine

Model: M1 Carbine

Caliber: .30 M1 Carbine

Action Type: Semi-Auto

Serial Number: 2513

Barrel Length: 18"

Stock Configuration: Light Colored Standard stock with metal heat shield.

Sights: Standard M1 front sight with Numrich Arms W. Hurley N.Y. scope mount to the receiver. The rear sight has been replaced with the scope mount. There is a Bushnell 4X Banner rifle scope (very clear optic).

Type of Finish: Blue / Parkerizing

Year of Manufacture: Early to mid 1960's

Markings: The serial number and the word ALPINE are on the rear receiver.

Notes on Gun: Alpine receivers were investment cast by Rimer Casting of Watertown, Ohio. Machining of the cast receiver was done by Calgo Manufacturing of Pasadena, CA.

The receiver was drilled and tapped for a scope mount,GI parts were used in assembling the Alpine carbine, as long as the surplus part was available. As parts were no longer available, they were cast by Rimer Casting and machined by Calgo Manufacturing. The entire bolt assembly (bolt, firing pin, extractor, ejector, springs, etc) were surplus GI throughout production. All of the barrels used on the Alpine carbines, throughout production, were 1903 A3 barrels machined to the outer dimensions of a carbine barrel, the chamber was reamed for the .30 carbine cartridge, the breach was threaded to fit the carbine receiver. The gas piston housing was manufactured separately and welded onto the barrel.

The majority of stocks used on the Alpine carbines were manufactured by Wayne's Wood Carving in Los Angeles. The Alpine stocks were manufactured from Walnut or Alder, whichever was readily available at a particular time. It is estimated that approximately 250-300+ Alpine M1 carbines were sold with the receiver drilled and tapped with a scope mounted as this one is.

Finish Originality: All original

Finish Condition: There is some light rust/erosion on the front barrel band/accessory lug but none apparent on the barrel or receiver. The gun is in very good exterior condition and exhibits only poor storage.

Bore Condition: The bore is bright with no visible pitting.

Mechanics: While not test fired, the gun appears fully functional.

Box: No box.

Overall Condition / Final Thoughts: This is an interesting variation of the M1 Carbine manufactured in California. A web search of this rifle yields good user feedback relative to quality.
