Topic - Serial Numbers to Look for and Report
Posted: Sep 13 2021 at 7:59am By Matt_X
So that number falls in the blocks of serial numbers assigned Inland.
and its not amongst the groups of numbers that seem to have been skipped (see first post of this thread).
According to Ruth & Duff The M1 Carbine Owner's Guide, your 925xxx probably was produced October to December 1943.  There are examples of carbine barrel date stamps leading final assembly and approval of complete carbines of 30 to 60 days.  Someone more knowledgable maybe has more insight specifically into Inland's production.  But it seems likely your carbine was finished December 1943.

Probably should start a thread about your carbine with some photos.  Its always nice when there is some provinance as in your case that its been in the family.

Of the books I've bought, I've found Riesch the most helpful for getting started with identifying parts.
If you get a copy, insert an erratta page in case any of these known errors affects something you're looking at. ;
