M1 carbine repair
On the advice of members on this forum I took my carbine to a gunsmith,
he replaced the sear sping and told me the old one had been cut. I took
the carbine and ten rounds to my range, when I pulled the trigger it
fired 2 rounds, another pull of the trigger it fired 3 rounds. I took the
trigger housing apart again and stoned the contact surfaces to make
sure they were square and straight, It did not help,I took the trigger
housing apart again and still found nothing wrong. When I started to
put it back together I noticed there was no side clearance on the trigger
or the hammer,I removed them and stoned both sides inside the housing,
both sides of the trigger and both sides of the hammer. I reassembled
the carbine and took it and 10 rounds out again, it loaded, fired and
ejected 1 round each time I pulled the trigger, (so far so good,) I think
I'll try 10 more, again 1 shot with each pull of the trigger. I really hope
this is the fix. THANKS GUYS:)

Glad to hear your problem is solved! Make sure you can repeat the 'one round per one trigger pull'. God forbid the BATFE comes knocking on your door. :rolleyes:

might also check with a empty chamber giving it a sharp rap on a carpeted floor to ensure the sear doesnt disengage.
