M1 .30 Carbine

My Postal Meter carbine has a "Blue Sky" barrel. I've not found Postal Meter barrels at gun shows. Are there such barrels or did they use barrels from other MFG's?
I'd like to get rid of the BS one for obvious reasons :<)

it could have been an arsenal rebuild which means it could have any barrel on it

Thanks Sam, I'll get to 'em. I tried Numrich as suggested by Gpaws and they are low on variety high on price :<) Just finding out what an original barrel is seems to be prob #1. Are they postal Meter or some other Co. that made barrels for Postal Meter. The Blue Sky is in very good shape but it has Blue Sky stamped on it. Very uncool.
As Gpaws said, the BS barrel could have been installed during a re-fit before it was repatriated so it is not for sure correct to the reciever.
