New guy here.

Growing up Dad had a  RockOla, and my uncle had an Inland, both bought during the $17/$20 days from the DCM.

When I was a teen, a buddy of mine's grandfather was a dealer, and we discovered an M1A1 in his hoards of stuff and took it out shooting and I loved it.  The grandfather caught us with it and we got a stern lecture on the value of an original M1A1 stock.

I bought an aftermarket M1A1 stock out of the Shotgun news, slapped my uncle's Inland in it (
he was deployed overseas and left it at my grandparents' house) , and had a blast with it.

When my uncle retired, he came and got his Inland, so I've had a stock sitting here empty until I could find an affordable shooter.

A couple of weeks ago a bubba'd/ sporterized carbine popped up on gunbroker, sold by a local pawn shop.  Scope mount (replaced rear sight), ears cut off the front sight, and a monte carlo stock.  That said, it was an Inland receiver with 12/42 dated barrel, and no permanent modifications were made so I bid on it and ended up with it.

I need to find a Type 2 rear sight for it, a front sight, and a type 3 barrel band.  Going to try to stick with all Inland parts just because I'm OCD and prefer it that way, although I realize that mixmasters are the general rule on carbines.  That said, if I'm buying parts, why not stick with the easiest to find ones that also happen to be the maker of the major components?

This one has a flip safety, double stamped serial number (almost didn't buy based on that alone),  M2 mag catch, so it was obviously rebuilt.  Had a type 2 barrel band with the swivel cut off Dead.

Barrel, receiver, trigger housing, and slide are all Inland.  Winchester flat bolt.  Haven't really looked at the little parts and don't think I'm going to mess with anything other than replacing the sights and barrel band with USGI parts.

Welcome to the forum.  Great folks here to help answer whatever questions and quandaries you may have.  Might want to consider posting a pic or two.  Especially the double stamped SN.
Once again, welcome!

jeepwm69,

Welcome!

I suggest filling out a Carbine Data Sheet for your Inland. Here is a link to the data sheet and info.

http://www.uscarbinecal30.com/forum/carbine-club-data-sheets_topic26.html

I don't go back to the $17/$20 DCM days, but I bought my first Carbine (Winchester) for $195 in 1984 in Hawaii. I still love to shoot it, and .30 Carbine was also the first cartridge I ever reloaded. When I bought it, WWII ammo was still commonly available, and was a lot cheaper than new production, so that's what I shot through it until I had enough empty casings to reload.

I'm sure you'll find the parts you're looking for, and you'll have a nice Carbine. You should post some photos when you get a chance.

It's great to see you join this place, and it's the best no BS tech forum for M1 carbines imho.

Here's the GB link to the carbine I purchased.


I wouldn't have even though about buying it had I not been able to inspect it in person prior to bidding.

Got a nice barrel band and rear sight yesterday from New2brass here on the forum.  Just waiting on my front sight now and I'll have it back in service.  Thanks Dan!

Living Free because of those that serve.....
