Carbine rear sights....

Recommended Posts

Guys, would like to fit my mag pouch to my Carbine........do I have to remove the rear site to do so.

 

If so, what do I need to do?

 

Cheers.

Hi Jack,

 

Rather than removing the rear sight I'd suggest you remove the stock,fit your mag pouch,and refit the stock. I have stripped that carbine down as far as it is possible to strip a new spec deact as when I bought it it was covered in a thick layer of grease and other crap.

Remember that the stud on the backside of the mag pouch for the M1 carabine ( Thats hooks up for the stud on the belt...) Makes a ugly dent in your stock unless removed...

As a reserve officer,

Owner of M1 Carabine, and 2 M1 rifles kept in the order they all should have been- (a)live and kicking...

Some of the Norwegian legislation is actually quite OK...

Hi Matt

 

Yes as an Reserve Ofiicer there are some clearly positive advantages.

One of them is owning semi automatic rifles......

 

Our closest Allied, past and present, are most welcome.

 

Some of the most memrable moments in my time of service was NATO related activity involving cooperation with units from GB :D

 

Winter, snow and high taxes are among the other aspects that must taken in consideration :x moving to Norway

 

 

 

Regards

I had that problem. To get the mags in I had to get the canvas wet so it became pliable, not soaking but fairly damp. Put the mags in then and when it dries out it'll retain the right size and shape.

Don't forget to take them out and clean well afterwards as they rust very easily Jack

No worries Tim as I used some roofing battern just to get the shape.

My magazine pouches have only ever had wooden dummies in them, at least in my ownership!

Just have to look out for wood rather than tin-worm :D
