Found in a small gunshop in Nor-Cal. Trade and cash negotiated, and it is mine. According to knowledgeable, serious Carbine collectors on the Milsurps Carbine forum, it is the real deal, and all original. "as issued" in WW II. EIther a 1960s DCM weapon, or maybe the "Holy Grail", a GI bring back weapon.

Inland Serial Number 3002430:
Barrel 11-43 dated, no type II or III band shadow
Type II High wood stock with Crossed Cannons and "OI" in sling well, P in a circle on bottom of grip, NO Type II or III band shadow
Butt plate -Inland late pattern
Hand Guard - Type II matches finish of stock. IO stamped
Type IA band - unmarked
Type IIA mag catch unk. stamp
Type III safety - unmarked
Bolt - flat, marked A.I. on short lug
Rear sight - Type I unmarked no stake marks on bridge
SLIDE - TYPE V PI
Hammer, NI (in the white)
Finish 95% +
ME < 1

New guy here - some photos of my first Carbine, a Howa Royal Thai Police surplus gun, these were made by Howa in Japan, on GI equipment - it's all original and complete, except for a 'W' round bolt.


These guns have very few markings - the serial number, Howa proof, and Royal Thai Police insignia on the bridge


Note the rear sight, bayonet lug and operating rod are unique, the rest is late style GI - stock is unmarked and M2 type, somewhat roughly finished.

Here are a few pics of 3 of the 4 M1 Carbines I have. My Universal M1 with Choate Folding Stock, is currently sitting at my LGS under Consignment For Sale. Serial Number Range is 377XXX.

My other 3 are:





Now... if the First M1 on the left looks a bit odd to you...



... it's because it's a Ruger 10/22, in an E.A. Arthur Brown M1-10/22 Conversion Stock Kit. The Stock Kit is Identical to the M1 Stocks, with regards to Length and Thickness. The Mags are Plastic Bases (That EAB also sells...), glued to the base of my 10/22 BX1 Mags shown here:





The Front and Rear Sights are Tech-100 Sights, and they are Outstanding! I have a similar set on my Ruger Mini-14.

The 2nd M1 in the middle, is an Auto Ordnance which I just picked up last week.

The 3rd M1 on the far right, is a 1943 National Postal Meter, with Rework Updates like the Bayonet-Lug and Adjustable Rear Sight. Serial Number Range is 4152XXX.

Cheers!

Could it be PJ marked in the sling well and not JP? If it is then the PJ marked stocks are late war time replacements.

I know I am late with my answer. I have a Rock-Ola RMC marked stock. It is stamped JP 1210 on right side of stock close to RMC ordnance acceptance marking. According to the Swiss gun shop where i bought this carbine, these carbines are imported from Vietnam. So I'm sure this is a rack number. There is another Swiss forum member. He has also a JP marked stock. I don't know if there are stocks marked liked this one in USA. But let me know.

Taking what seemed like forever, I have finally acquired my first M1, a paratrooper. More and better quality M1A1's to come hopefully. Strange, what started out as an attempt to get my feet wet in the M1A1 world ended up with an Inland and a Garand.

Here is my 1943 Inland. It supposedly a GI bring back. Everything is in great shape other than the barrel. Shoots very accurately, but had a dark bore :(
