My knowledge and library is 20 years old and dated. It was not in any reference source back then, but has the Inland fat-boy dogleg made it into the literature yet?

Well, after 13 hours and 37 views, there are zero responses. That probably means it's not in the literature now and everyone thinks my windage off. Consider the pictures below. I bought this rifle around '00 and believe it to be original.

Please discuss

Nice Looking Hammer. I don't recall seeing very many of these hammers. It is mentioned in the Craig Riesch book, says it was used around the 545,000 serial number range.

War Baby does mention a dogleg "IN" used through summer '43. However, does not specify as a "Fatboy".

boy that hammer is sharp!

69 views and not yet 19 hours and not answers. What to do???????????
Teach a man to fish.

If you look above your post there are 3 search boxes. the one on the left is for USGI carbines. Middle for commercial carbines and the right for the occupation carbines.
The occupation carbines are USGI carbines that stayed in occupied Germany and Austria.
Many retained their original parts. You can spend hours in the "Armory" section.

Our newsletters have discussed the fat boy/flat side hammers
CCNL 231 in Jan 1996 discussed the hammer and that it was most seen in S'G' carbines.

Later from the info gathered from our datasheets we established others and serial ranges.

CCNL 346 is the most up to date manufacturers update on the Inland's first serial block of carbines compiled by Chris Albright.
Page 20 shows that the IN type 3 (Riesch type IIa) was observed in the 404,xxx - 626,xxx range as well as a S.G. subcontracted Inland receiver in the 811xx range

rdfttwo.  Sir. My observation has been that the response times here can vary greatly.  That seems to be particulaly true of those who are very knowledgable in particular areas.   The many views may reflect people like me who don't know enough.  Some may reflect those who don't know off the top of their head but will go looking when they have a chance. 

Dave.  The newsletters are only in print.  There is a subject index on-line.  So if you see a topic of interest you can then order that newsletter." rel="nofollow -

Thanks New2brass... I knew it was genuine in the context of the gun but I never found any published inforamtion on it. Some folks dismissed it/me because it wasn't in the books. In retrospect, I should have joined the old club back in paper days.

 I got ta thinkin'. Does anyone have a "regular", as in not a "fatboy" IN marked dogleg hammer? I don't own one and do not believe I have have ever seen one. This begs the question...where all the IN doglegs of the fatboy variety?
