    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Picked up an Inland M1 Carbine today.
    Got a pretty good deal too...




    Here's a link to more quick pix I took before my battery died...More carbine pix

    Metal is quite good, parking is close to 90%.
    Bore is shiny, but muzzle is a bit worn (over zealous cleaning!)
    The stock...well, she'll be a project. Quite a few dings and a chip at the base of the pistol grip.

    For those that care about such things-

    MFG-Inland
    SN-1001XX
    Barrel-Underwood 10/43
    flat bolt
    adjustible rear sight, lever safety switch
    2 rivet handguard
    stock marked with an SG in a box on right side and
    RSG in left sling cutout

    I'm going to look at a Quality Hardware tomorrow...muahahahaha

    Nice lookin' baby, PB.

    I know it's tempting to refinish the stock, but personally, I'd leave it just as it is. If you alter it's present condition, you'll ruin it's future collector value.

    What others refer to as "well used", I prefer to think of as "patina".

    ...yeah I've got a pair of Identical M1's altough I've put mine in a sliding wire stock polymer stock I acquired many years ago. I always keep one on stand-by as house guardian as my wife actually loves to shoot them too; and has become fairly adept with them. They are a little heavier and seemingly have zero recoil.
