Original M1 Inland

Discussion in 'The Powder Keg' started by Capt'n Mil Coll, May 25, 2008.

  1. 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.
