serial #849984, 30 Carbine, 18" 9-43 dated Inland barrel with a bright near excellent bore that shows perhaps the beginnings of light frosting near muzzle. The metal surfaces retain 80% arsenal parkerzied finish with overall thinning and fading. The highwood walnut stock rates very good with an added oil finish, a partially faded ordnance wheel, a strong "IO" marking in the left sling cut, a strong circle "P" firing proof on pistolgrip, some runs in finish on pistolgrip, a few light dings and scattered handling marks. The receiver has an "SG" marking indicating a Saginaw subcontracted receiver, the recoil plate appears unmarked, the rear sight and operating slide appear to be later replacements but the majority of the other parts appear to be of Inland manufacture. No magazine is included with this M1 Carbine. A fine Inland M1 Carbine with many correct parts. (208829-29) {C&R} (800/1200) SOLD FOR $1,610.00
