The Collector Source is a family run business. We are facing personal family issues that are prohibiting our ability to receive and process orders in the timely fashion our customers have come to respect. Rather than continuing on, we have chosen to stop taking orders for awhile and regroup.
We will be closed and not taking new orders during the rest of the year. We hope to be back up and running in the spring of 2017.
We thank all of our valued customers (new and return customers) for their kind thoughts and prayers through this difficult time for our family.
Thank you all VERY much for the kind emails and letters we have recieved during this time.
The Collector Source has located a large source of Government demilled M1 carbines. These M1 Carbines were demilled sometime during the 1980's or 1990's along with many other types of weapons. The stocks and metal pieces were sold for scrap.
Years ago an older gentleman bought these railroad cars full of scrap metal and stocks. He was a machine gun collector so over the years he took the salvaged items for the BAR, Thompson etc and used them, The M1 Carbine parts have sat in a warehouse in NC for years.
I have been salvaging as many items as I can from these M1 Carbine parts. I remove the items that are still operational, clean them up and oil them.
Some of these M1 carbine parts require refinishing due to being stored loosely in a humid warehouse, so I have contracted with a professional military armorer to reparkerize the parts that require it.
Due to the time and work involved, items will appear on the website as I can get them prepared and posted. I will post pictures of each individual item. It is more time consuming that way but allows the customer to know exactly what they are buying.
