Here's an excellent example of one of America's earliest semi automatic carbines: The venerable M1 Carbine. The particular specimen was produced by Inland; a division of General Motors. Inland was by far the largest producer of M1 Carbines; manufacturing more than 2,600,000 during its production run. In fact, Inland guns constitute a full 43% of all M1 Carbines made!
This particular example is in great shape. It's 900,000 serial number range puts it's date of manufacture in late 1943; and its barrel is dated October of 1943, indicating that is original to the receiver!
The stock is in excellent condition with a minor handling marks but no cracks, chips or other damage.
The finish of the metal components is excellent with a wonderful grey-black aged Parkerizing with no areas of wear or rust. All the markings are crisp and legible.
The action is wonderfully smooth and the bore is fantastic! It shines like a mirror with beautifully crisp rifling and and no rust or pitting. There are no import marks anywhere, indicating that this gun has been owned by the good old U-S-of-A since it was originally built nearly 80 years ago.
Included with this rifle is an original magazine in good condition with excellent bluing.
