Picked this up as a Christmas present to ME, looks like mostly Inland although I'm not an expert here. The down side is a cracked gas cylinder, but I knew full well and bought it as a shooter with the intent of replacing the barrel.  I'll put together a data sheet this week to submit.

Inland hand stamped M"1", Barrel 3-45, muzzle wear is ~1.0. Things I noticed right off the bat is the bolt appears well used, but the trigger group is new parked... unmarked hammer, along with a lightly used Oprod, RIA front sight and an IBM buttplate... 

With the RIA front sight could this have been re-arsenaled post WW2/Korea and then put in storage?  This rifle came from a collection and hasn't been fired in decades.

Yellow rack number up top, and refinished rack number under the heal, gorgeous deep red stock...https://imgur.com/a/rrUHz4x

VERY pleased with this first experience... Books are inbound for me to do my own research, but I thought I throw it out there for review -

Congrats on your first brother, they are such a fun gun to shoot and study!
Looks like a great carbine outside of the cracked gas cylinder.  I think I read on CMP you plan on shooting it.  If so let us know how it holds up.
 
I've meet a few carbine people from Huntsville in the last year, seems like a good area for carbines.  If you ever make it to Bham, and want to do some carbine shooting...just hit me up.

Yep, I'm definitely going to shoot it... I figure it'll be a fun gun for my girls as well.  I'm relatively new to the milsurp scene, so I'm just figuring out who's around Huntsville... I heard about the carbine club in Birmingham, might have to get down that way this next year.  I can see this becoming a "1 carbine per daughter" scenario like they did with the Ruger 10/22s!
