      Here's the sales invoice that accompanied one of those Carbines.
      I noticed the carbine was shipped from Letterkenny. Is it LEAD marked?

      Edit: I sent you a pm.

        SA SHM and SA SPG are early rebuild stamps. I had posted a SA SPG here awhile back

        Some M1A1 carbines were reported received from the NRA carbine sales during 1962 -63

        I have seen mix-master NRA Sales carbines with paper work sell for $1200

          During 1974-1975 The American Rifle posted a forum in their magazine that would permit you to turn in a damaged or unserviceable receiver to RocK Island, pay a small fee (about $22.00) and receiver a very nice to excellent condition receiver and barrel. I did turn in a receiver and got back a really nice 1,5 receiver with a excellent S-A 4-43 barrel. Someone once stated that these barreled receivers were spares set aside during war production each month ? I did assemble mine, my friend in Texas got a Aug 1941 barrel and receiver

            Thank your for posting. How about posting a data sheet on this fine rifle.

              The stock on your DCM rifle was, at one time, on an SA rebuild, hence the SA open square on the left side of the stock. I'm surprised that LEAD left it on there as they were notorious for removing just about every mark except for their proof P.

              This is a spectacular example of the pride that Letterkenny took in their work. Finding a rifle of this caliber would be a LEAD collector's dream and would, no doubt, serve as the centerpiece to his/her collection.

              i just picked up a 6-66 LEAD. I've been wanting one for quite some time now....but it doesn't even come close to yours. Take care of her!

                Dave is right on the mark with his comments. That is an exceptional example of the work that LEAD did.
                Any way to get a photo of the leg etch so I can add this one to my database?

                  My dad bought several of these...they would only sell one to a NRA member so he signed up my mom and grandmother...he would scrape together the money and I remember these rifles coming by Railway Express...(kind of a forerunner to UPS) i also remember as a 7-8 year old kid signing for these rifles...lol. as no one was home....I remember the packages were soaked with grease as the rifles were slathered in grease.....Dad would keep the best and use one for trade bait....I still have the one Rockola he kept....One he sadly gave to my idiot brother in law as a gift....I found out later it went stright to a pawn shop...grrrrrr
