    Carbine maintenance today.

    Dug out the carbines for their annual cleaning and maintenance. Looks like I missed 2 over the years. My 2 CMP carbine specials had not been taken apart by me since I brought them home from Camp Perry. Both have as new round bolts that were gummed solid with caked grease. Don't know how they got missed, but I know I haven't shot them yet. Also found a half dozen M1 service grades in the back of the same safe that are still in the rust preventive plastic bags from N. Store so I haven't messed with them since purchase, at least 10 years ago. Whatta Hobby!
