I do not have an online shopping cart. Once installed, that piece of software will automatically bill each customer for everything. As I run out of original material, I am constantly having to change customers' orders. Most orders would require more work issuing credits. If I were selling newly made items, online clearance of credit cards would not present a problem. All credit card and contact information is on each page. You can call in your credit card, email it, or send it by mail.

No shipments outside the US.

For the ultimate collectors of carbines, or carbine magazines, available is an original box of 100 magazine covers. PHOTO  This item was still in development in 1945, but never standardized or contracted until after the war ended.  So far the earliest contract found is this one from 1953. Original box contains nomenclature and contractor's name. PHOTO Original box also contains directions, as this was a pretty new item for its time. PHOTO    If you plan on using them, covers still have the original powdered white preservative and must be soaked in luke warm water with mild dish detergent. Original unopened box of 100............... $60.00

 

D9    M8 Jointed Cleaning Rod, WWII production, for carbine use only.  This rod is proper length to stop short of hitting receiver’s rear, thus
breaking tips and bending brushes. Each rod will include a US GI bore brush and carrying case.

When the rod was developed, both the 4 section carrying cases and the later 3 section carrying cases were authorized for use.  As a general rule you can assume the 4 section cases were issued earlier.  Here is a quick summary of production:
 

4 Section Production

3 Section Production

1941 thru 1944

1943 thru 1965

You can now order separately a collectible carrying case from WWII or more common ones for storage of your rod.  The below photos will give you examples.

West German case, produced in Holland circa 1958.  Most dealers include this one with their rods.  PHOTO  $10.00 Each (Just a few available)

US GI 3 piece OD case, produced 1964 and 1965.  PHOTO $10.00 Each or order with M8 rod for $25.00

US GI WWII 4 piece Khaki, undated PHOTO.  Shades of Khaki vary.  This version was produced 1943 through 1944.  M8 rod for $35.00 Each

US GI WWII 3 piece  OD, produced 1944 thru 1945, undated. M8 rod for $35.00 Each.

D10  Torque Wrench, Orig, GI, Mfg’d. during the 1980’s. 
For measuring torque when installing rear sight. 
Direct support thru Depot, No Carrying Case..........$27.50

D11  Same as above, Armorer’s version with metal
Carrying Case …………….$40.00

D12  Late Issue US GI Caliber .30 Field Rod.  This rod
is an adaptation of the swivel handle from the late 1980's.
Two sections and the tip make it the perfect size
for the carbine. When assembled the brush will not hit the
rear of the receiver. Comes with carrying case and
bore brush.   ........................................................................... $12.00
   PHOTO   Assembled for storage: PHOTO

D14 Blank Firing Attachment (BFA), Dutch, 1950's manufactured. This BFA was produced in 1958 and probably through the 1960's, in Holland.  The BFA was issued to the Dutch troops and was also issued in West Germany during those early days of NATO.  The BFA can be displayed on the carbine. PHOTO  It has a red band around the body for a visual warning to prevent the use of service ammunition with it mounted. It rotates to lock onto the barrel with a spring and plunger assembly. These BFA's will not fit any carbine that has a stamped front sight from US WWII production; the sights are too wide.  The majority of front sights were machined (and thin cast during the 1960's) in US production. Additionally the West Germans produced their own machined sights during the late 1950's.  $20.00 each

Cleaning Patches, US GI, flannel, smooth and rough sided. Large 4 inch x 4 inch, these were produced back in the 1970's for the .50 caliber BMG. PHOTO  Cut in half and get two uses for the price of one. Pack of 100/$7.50 

I recently found buried 6 original Front Sight Removal Tools in my storage area.  These were made in 1953 and do not have the drawing number on them.  They are in about 95% condition as far as finish.  Top PHOTO  Bottom  PHOTO   Hard to find, Original US GI, not made in China. $150.00  Shipping and Insurance $18.00
