i bought a carbine from an estate sale in central Kansas, this rifle is all complete and wasn't returned to the army for upgrades or reissue, so it had to have left the armies control at some point, with a serial number of 40393 its possible that it could have went to the 7th but to which company I guess ill never know. it does have a 25 on the stock and the 5 that is engrave matches one found in the reno battle area with a number 45 in the same place. An yes I will buy your book from amazon this week. you mentioned serial 40395 so what the history of that one
