OP, sounds like a no-brainer. Have you bought it yet? Why not?!
Scraping up the funds for it and a Ruger Mk II. I'm hoping to bring them home this week. They aren't going anywhere. The estate auction isn't until the middle of May, and the executor for the estate, an attorney I share office space with, is just waiting for the cash from me before then.

Well, everything is safe and sound and locked away. Next will be to do a good cleaning if I can find my manual, then track down some .30 Carbine rounds and see how she shoots.

In taking a good look under better light, I don't think it is in need of anything. CMP suggests cheesecloth and tung oil if cleaning is desired, but I don't even think it needs that right now.

My digital camera died, so not sure if and when pictures will happen. I think my daughter still has one, if she can find it in the disaster she calls her room.

Doc- do not remove gas piston nut. Need special tool to re-install- and gas piston on a carbine normally does not require cleaning. All US carbine ammo has always been non-corrosive.

Thanks. If I can't find my manual, I will get another one. Probably look on youtube for a video.
