    The M2 is a Full auto /select fire/ NFA class 3 weapon. $200 tax stamp required. Only allowed in machine gun states. The M1 is not. The M1 receiver is not any different, then the M2 except for the M2 Stamped on it. B2B

    Agree with the above completely ? I have a WWII vintage IBM manufactured M1 carbine and it and the M2 look identical in every way with the exception of the selector. Also the M1 carbine came with a round bolt or flat bolt depending on the manufacture and the round and flat bolt are interchangeable.
