It appears that your receiver is made by Inland based on the serial number. There was an issue drilling the deep hole in the receiver for the recoil spring. The drill bit would wander and break out the bottom or side of the receiver.
The receivers were salvaged by converting them to utilize a springtube.
Your sirial number in within the know range of Inlands that were converted.

it is estimated that there are 6000 inland spring tube receivers,

I think that it is AMCO. Do the component parts give any clues to its spring tube heritage?

I’m might take a little Murphy’s and lightly clean the well area and see if the lettering becomes clearer.

I'm sorry Mike. Your sling well is like a Rorschach test to me. Yeah, if I look at it long enough I can see the "RMC" but it's more from your suggestion than from what is actually there. It might show up better if some of the "patina" were able to be removed. Your call.

The rear sight markings are "I.R. CO" for International Register Co. The number should read "7160060" which is the Ordnance part number of the stamped rear sight.

I'm not sure about the letters on the sling swivel. Normally they are not marked. Are there markings in front of the swivel on the barrel band itself that look like "AMCO"?

You are correct on the markings. Very faint. Someone had indicated that it might have been manufactured by another manufacturer and that name would have been stamped above Inland and then later struck through by Inland and that was what was what I was looking for. The markings are on the barrel band. Mike

Your rear sight is most likely marked I.R.C.O. w/7160060 underneath.
Could your front barrel band be marked AMCO, your actual swivel would not be marked.

The lettering in front of the serial# under the rear sight will read INLAND DIV. I recommend that you do not remove the rear sight.

With regard to the lettering inside the well, it seems to me that the #1 is stamped above 3 letters. The middle letter may be a “B” but not positive. It also looks like an x at the very bottom. I can see with a glass that the only name under the sight is Inland  Nothing above and no re strike so I’m guessing that it was always an Inland.

I knew what you meant Jack.

Is this possibly an "RMC"

I installed your pictures.
Unfortunately the apple stuff is not something I am familiar with. Here is a tutorial which you may have already read.


you need to upload the pictures in your file, but they must be resized if too large. There is a link in my signature on how to upload as well as resizing the pictures.
Between the two tutorials maybe you can get it to work. 
If not I will install pictures when I can.

Can’t really tell on the RSG. It looks like there were intentional strike outs or over stamps in the sling inlet but can’t see the underlying clearly. The rack numbers appear on the pistol grip and 2 places on the underside of the stock. Good to know on the butt plate, thanks. Hard to tell on the bolt. I have round and flat on other carbines but this seems somewhere in between both. I appreciate the input as all I knew was that it is a mystery numbered Inland spring tube with an Underwood barrel. Any other info is appreciated too. I read the tutorial on uploading photos but no joy. If anyone can offer me some help on that I will appreciate that too. Please pm me. Thanks, Mike

Mike, I also noticed that it has a Rock-Ola butt plate. It has that distinctive missing dot at 3 o'clock. Look and see if you can see "RSG" in the sling well.

Wow, it looks like someone really wanted to be sure the rack numbers were easy to see. The marks in the sling well are really hard to make out. Maybe someone else will recognize something. The stock has a generous coating of "patina". Perhaps there is something underneath that we can't see now.

It looks like you do have a flat bolt after all. I bet that stock could tell some great stories if it could talk. How about closeups of the sling well and rack numbers?

Looks like a rack number to me.
