Recently we had a few reports the following carbine that was offered for sale for over 8k.
Within a day or two it shows the item as sold.

I am interested in what the what others comments are on this item.

The barrel finish looks like it does not match where front sight is and the date.  Looks to me like there was a stake mark filled at the back of the rear sight right side.  The S on the sight looks off to me. I could be wrong on all of my observations but that's ok because I'm still trying to figure some of this stuff out.

Shouldn't we see a Dot in front of the 30 M1 on an Inland that early?  How about the rear sight, ccnl 346 says an S (with serifs) was reported on the sight base on the earliest carbines?

Saw that one the other day for sale and was going to download the pics but it was gone when I checked the next day. Glad you got em. Lots of issues with that one I think. Finish, fixed up stake mark, fake flip, stamp, etc. My thought was run forest run.

I wonder about the mag catch too. Would a carbine that early have a subcontracted mag catch???

I do not comment a lot. My wife says I can not explain stuff well. Well in my opinion the only correct real parts in that #92 may be a couple pins and springs-any thing I am seeing with a marking is a humped up POS part made someplace other the the good old US of A. Well maybe stock made here but it was recently made

@ Jack, correct!

Question: Would a two digit Inland be among the fist carbines delivered to say the first Division or Cannon company?

I think more likely delivered to Aberdeen Proving Ground.

I agree.
From Table B it would seem these would be in-house development if not one of the ones sent for testing.

A buddy told me that he recalls 92 being for sale at Riverbank Armory for quite a while, years ago.

That would make a lot of sense.

Yep, RB had the receiver for sale.
Butt plate is a replica.

What else?

The style of font and the alignment of letters on the barrel matches examples I've seen of Brown-Lipe-Chapin barrels. I didn't think they made any this early. What do you think?

Looks to me that the whole back of the receiver has been reworked and and re-stamped . If that POS sold for 8k , someone paid 7750 to much . IMO .

Scott,
Same thoughts here about the back of the receiver after comparing pics today.
Wish there were more pics of this to look at, but given the Repro rear sight and seeing that the feed ramp has been park'd over.

Shame this kinda of money was spent.
