I am trying to get a Type 2 barrel band off my m1 carbine and get a type 3 barrel band with bayonet lug on. How is this done?

you muct remove the front site in order to switch the bands. to remove the front site you first need to drift out the pin then pull the sight off being very careful not to damage the little key that sits between the barrel and site.

Some front sights will fall of with the pin and key removed, others can be drifted of with a brass rod or piece of wood and hammer, others will not come off unless you use a front sight removal tool.
I would order a new key also. They also make a front sight install tool

If you were local I'd do it for you.

Mine came off easily by tapping with a piece of wood. Soaked the sight in KROIL overnight first. Good luck.
