Im not big on this subject but if you need a new barrel you may need to make one from scratch or have one made for you obviously by a gunsmith. I dont know much about the M1 so you may be able to interchange a barrel but i wouldnt count on it unless you find out for sure. Good luck

Depends on who made your carbine. If it is a GI carbine, then any GI barrel should fit. Universal- sorry, probably not. Planfield? GI barrel requires some machining.

If you are not a smith, I would urge you to find a smith to do this. There are specialized tools for removing a barrel without detroying the receiver. There is also the issue of indexing the barrel so the gas piston ends up at 6 o'clock exactly.

Companies like this will supply barrel and install for $315

This is probably not they time or place to ask a question but my grandfather said that his m1 was produced by singer. I've looked on the internet and everything I find says singer never made carbines just 1911's so does anyone know if singer actually produced any carbines. If not I am pretty sure I won't be able to convince him otherwise.
