It's made by the "TAPCO" company out of Kennesaw, GA. Made in the USA.
Ronn, If you want to check their stocks out you can see them a tapco.com

Bruce here is a pic of that older rifle my pops in law has. He told me alot about it but my punch drunk brain totally forgot. I think it's a M-1 30 carbine from 1940's or something.

Wow thanks for sharing the pics TG, that's an awesome Rifle, it is from the M1 .30 caliber family,
The one your father in law has looks like the M2 .30 caliber Carbine,
In my opinion It's the best one of the M1 family. M1 brief History. <-click to view

M1 family line-up.

M1 Carbine - semi-automatic only
M1A1 Carbine - semi-automatic only, with a folding metal buttstock, issued to paratroopers because of the lightweight stock
M2 Carbine - selective fire, semi or fully automatic determined by selector switch on receiver top, left side
M3 Carbine - sniper version with a specially modified grooved receiver for mounting an infrared 4X "Snooper Scope"


Important to note, the M2 is responsible for most of todays modern semi automatic rifles.

Another little FYi = I have also seen just the Bayonet and Scabbord sell on Ebay for as much as $280.00 Dollars

Somewhere I have a link to the Parts blow up for the M2 If I can find It I'll send it to you, It would be a nice display to print it out for your Father In Law...

I don't meen to beat a dead horse. But I really like this conversion. I recently gave my ak-47 a face lift also. But I wanted to know if you still had your wood furniture. And if you would be willing to sell it.

chase your dreams... not the competition

That would be cool man. Iv looked at tapco,ati, and ak47.net, romanian guns. All I find is tactical furniture. And the wife wants some nice cherry wood. She hates the ak. But loves the sks. So she pretty much took it over.
