This is a very fine example of a very rare Quality Hardware M1 Carbine that was manufactured in August of 1943. Quality Hardware was one of the scarcest producers and they were located just down the road from Rock-Ola, who provided them with stocks and barrels and a lot of Quality Control advice. This example has a beautiful Quality hardware/ Rock-Ola marked stock and a very scarce Buffalo Arms 8- 1943 marked barrel. Getting a carbine this rare and this nice is a huge deal to any serious carbine collector. We have been doing this for a long time and this is one of the very few Quality Hardware Carbines we have had.
