Hello,

Thank you for letting me join this forum.

I am writing from Bilbao, Northern Spain. First of all, I think I have to apologize for my English. I try hard but I think I still keep kicking your language.

I am 55 years old chap and always keen in Second World War and weapons.

i have to say in Spain is not easy to obtain a licence for a firearm, or not as easy as in the States. Well the ting is that last year i found some time to obtain the licence and bought an ERMA M1 carbine that I am delighted with.

Last month I bought the proper thing, the M1 that I like so much since I was a young boy.

It is an Inland number 365497. All I know about it is that it shoots quite well, and I am delighted with it.

Let me post some pictures to show it.

I will appreciate whatever information you can provide to me.

Welcome to the forum!  I think your English is great.  "Mucho mejor" than my Spanish which I took in high school over 40 years ago.  Actually me being from East Tennessee there are some who would say your English is better than mine.  :)  

This is a great place to find out about your carbines and get some really good help when needed.  I see you have mastered posting pictures so you are ready to go.

Best regards

Hola Diego,  Me llamo David y vivo en el sur del estado de Arizona, frontera con Mexico.  Tengo una coleccion de 15 carabinas M1, todos hechos por varios manufactureros desde 1942 a 1945.  El numero de serie de su Inland queda en el primer bloque fabricado, tarde 1942 o temprano 1943.  Inland, Division de General Motors, hizo mas de 2,084,000 ejemplos, o sea mas de cualquier otra contratista.  Su carabina es muy bonita y bien conservada.  Hay mucha informacion disponible en el Internet sobre estas armas.  Saludos para Usted y los suyos en Bilbao. Su ingles es estupendo comparado con mi pobre espanol.
I appreciate all commentary.

Thank you everybody for the warm welcome.

I appreciate some of you try to answer me in Spanish, it makes me feel at home. Having said that, I think itis better to use the English language. You americans, have also to feel at home on your own forum; and I train my English whis is very benefitial to me.

Patrick, thank you for your interest.

When I bought the carbine, 3 boxes of ammo were included in the price; Remington:
