    I have a Iver Johnson M1, SS# AA64013. Can anyone tell me about this carbine? How old it is, where it was made, what it's worth? It has never been fired, but the rear site is broken and needs to be replaced.

    since i am really not sure exactally when iver johnson started using the AA leter codes i can't give you an exact year of manufacture. your serial number is extremely high so i am guessing late in production. for a broken rear sight deduct about $100. these are getting hard to find.
