Default M-1 U.S. Carbine

I am trying to figure out what a part is on my Carbine. It's a Underwood/Quality Hardware Machine Co. M-1 U.S. Carbine.

I have searched endlessly on the interwebs looking for anything that would describe this part and I get nothing. I have included pics of it to see if anyone may know thank you for your help to who replies.

I posted big pictures so that you can see the part clearly. (I am still under size the limit)

I've had two M1 Carbines and neither of them had that part. The only thing I can think of is that it is possibly related to full auto operation. That would make your carbine an M2. Other than that, I'm clueless.

Here's a link that may help: Collecting and Shooting the U.S. M1 .30 Caliber Carbine - Disassembly and Reassembly

I thought that also, but I can't find anything on an M-2's breakdown either.

The part that is in question doesn't move much it bumps against the slide and moves a block near the hammer.

The block near the hammer does not move enough to make a full contact point with the hammer. I have not fired the gun so I do not know if it is capable of rapid fire.

It is stamped above the breech M-1 U.S. Carbine. (but that's not to say someone might have switched the trigger group)

thank you for your response tho

Well just joined the http://m1carbineforum.forumco.com to see if these fine people might be able to shed some light for me.

Don't worry though I'm still a loyal FTF member

Default As usual

I always falter before I prevail lol. I found my info that I needed.

It is a disconnector lever.

It appears as though the model that I have, either use to be or was retrofitted from parts of a fully auto M-1.

It still needs the selector and the selector spring to become a full auto again. (I am not going to persue that at all!!)

I included some pics of the manual for your enjoyment.
