    Like you know already, you have an Inland, which appears to have it's original barrel. I believe at that point Inland was still using the type II band, and the round bolt is correctas is the adjustable sight. Depending on if other parts are different, those parts listed are correct for the rifle as of that date.

    Glad to help, but for the ease of us all, use punctuation. We are not tweeting or texting here. Spend a little time and make your post presentable.

    Absolutely!

    As far as what your rifle is, you haven't given us enough information to verify who made it.. Just because it has an Inland barrel, doesn't mean it's an Inland rifle..

    Under the rear sight, you'll see a manufacturer, just in front of the serial number. THAT is the manufacture of the rifle as far as BATFE and everyone else is concerned..

    Take a good flashlight and read as much of it as you can and then post it here. We'll gladly help you with as much info about your rifle as possible.

    As far as punctuation and spelling, as mentioned, this isn't texting between you and a friend.. This gets read by a lot of people and should be written like a book, not ritn so u cn brly rd it. Take pride in your posts, as they portray what you're like in person.

    The serial number as he listed it, is in the Inland alloted range. That's how I could tell the bolt, sights, and band were more or less proper.

    I really need to buy the Carbine Collector's book, rather than searching for it everytime I'm looking up a carbine date of manufacture.. :)
