By observing the pics, please give me your thoughts on this Carbine.  S/N indicates manufacture date 1944.  Thoughts on stock, barrel band, sights, bayonet lug, etc.  I realize pics don't give "condition" of gun, but they do give a little something to view.  This carbine comes from an Estate sale and apparently has been in storage for quite some time.

Some don't like it, but the easiest way to post pics on forums is to create an account on Imgur. Once created, upload your pictures, click on the pic you want to post to a forum, manually highlight the BB Code link, copy it then paste it here.

Looks like a standard postwar rebuild, birch potbelly stock. As long as the barrel is solid it looks like a nice Carbine.

Can't tell from the photo's you've posted. The experts here will want info from the barrel and trigger group to tell what's what.

Air Support, Thank you for taking the time to upload the pictures.

Some here like to take the easy road and suggest 3rd party software to display pictures. It may be good for some posts that become irrelevant once the discussion ends.
However, Many take the time and scour the forum in researching or for items similar to what they want to post before asking a question.

Nothing is more frustrating seeing a picture with a big Photobucket banner across a picture of a marking or one of the missing picture icon when some third party hosting deletes the picture.


It is understandable that they delete the pictures due to the cost of storage and bandwidth used when someone links a photo.

When the pictures are gone it makes some threads unusable and then someone has to go cleanup the thread or lock and delete posts. This just creates work for the forum.

We are always happy to to help anyone edit their pictures and even install them into a post as well as helping people understand how to post a picture.

I'm not too savvy when it comes to computers, especially when it comes to figuring out software.  Did I do something wrong?

not at all!  You did upload the pictures to the server. We will have to work on the next step.

The point of my post is to educate those who may not understand we are not the average forum, and the why we discourage the "easy" third parts software so that all posts remain relevant for the future. I am sure it is all meant to be helpful, but in the long run it is not helpful to this forum.

It takes a little learning to post from 3rd party as it takes a little learning to post on the forum.
We educate people on the carbine, I guess we have to brush up on our educating people on how to post pictures.

Yes, I think most folks just don't consider or realize that photos with 3rd party linked software or that are linked to another site eventually go away.

It is extremely nice to have the photos stay imbedded with the CCC forum so that it can be viewed and kept as a point of reference as long as the forum exists.

I, too, hate finding something I am looking for on other forums that may have been discussed, say in 2012 or 2015, and all of the pictures "posted" in the discussions have bad links and can no longer be viewed by anyone.

The "one picture is as good as a thousand words" is gone!

OK...so, will my pics remain in the thread or will they someday disappear?  First time I ever used IMGUR.  In the past I used photobucket because it was the "thing" back then.  I too hate to go back to some of my own posts showing photobucket pics that are no longer available.

Strange that it has a flat bolt with the receiver's serial number. If it's a 5.3 serial number.

Good Eye for a Custom Knife maker.
I Cherish mine !!

Round bolts-
We'd expect some mixed use by Inland up to the 5,07.... range and Maybe even a little after.
I have 8 Inlands from 5,0 to 5,53. All are Round bolts after my Flat bolted 5,00, 5,01 and 5,06.

Wanna read something ironic?  I purchased an Inland back in 2007 from the CMP, S/N 538xxxx.  I gave it to one of my sons and it too has a flat bolt, bayonet lug, etc.  Not remembering the particulars on that carbine I started looking for another one just to have another one.  I bet I watched 50 auctions and viewed even more carbines before pulling the trigger on the one in these pics.  As stated, the S/N on it is 535xxxx.  When I looked up the S/N it showed 1944.  I did remember the CMP was made in 1944 also, so I called my son to get his S/N and that is when I realized that these two carbines were most likely manufactured in the same week back in 1944.....definitely within days of each other.  That's AMAZING to me....
