This is an all original Inland M1 Carbine. It was supposedly brought back by a Navy Seaman that traded a Marine comming from the battle of Saipan. The swabbie gave the leatherneck a .45 for the carbine. The Marine was apparently J L Watkins Jr. because he carved his name in the butt. The butt also has a large notch cut in the neck. It has the flip sights. High wood. I am not sure about the front barrel band. There is no arsenal rebuild marks on it. It has Inland on the reciever.
