Hi Everyone, 62 years a shooter. practical experience with M1 Carbine. Retired Radiation Physicist and grandpa. Living the best I can. 

 Newby to ownership of this fine instrument. Just bought a plainfield copy version just to get one that I can afford on a retiree budget. Not a singer but if I can get parts when needed, a shooter. 

 I will appreciate you old hands help to that goal. Thanks for letting me join you

Welcome to the forum. Have you checked out the Plainfield Carbine information under the commercial carbine section off of the main club website? Here is the link.

welcome, old fart! This old fart is a relative newbie as well. Be advised that one will never be enough. In less than a year another Inland followed me home. They are so much fun and this forum has been very helpful. Post often and enjoy the ride.

As we say down south, I heard that. I have picked up many a stray in my day, and amongst them a few pearls. Taken some pretty bad whoopings from the lady of the house though.
