4/15/19 - This is a near-mint Inland M1 Carbine that was manufactured in September of 1943. Early gun with only six-digit serial. The metal parts retain about 99% original finish, with only minor wear on the buttplate. The high-wood stock is in the same condition as the metal, with clear cartouche on right side and IO marking in sling well. Circle P on bottom of wrist. Excellent, shiny bore. Comes with an original magazine pouch that is also dated to 1943, and one magazine which is still inside the original wrapper.
