Has anyone ever seen in person or handled the M1A3 folding pantograph stock listed in 1944 or the M1A4 sliding stock listed in 1952?? I have only seen actual period photos of them both.

Only test pieces were ever made. None were ever issued so other then someone testing them they would never have left Inland or Springfield Armorey.

Hi;If it has been in storage for 50-60 yrs it would be pricey, but if restored to look near original ????????????? The carbine in question needs a complete list of parts with pic's for authenticity. Their are a lot of things one needs to know about these carbines in order to judge if correct. Remember: if it looks new, it most likly is! Look for old grease in hard to clesn areas, the butplate will have a casting mark. the rivets are hollow core and will have a rolled edge[not flat]when pressed. Will not have M2 cutout and OI stamped near bridge,inside of barrel channel. Jst give it a REAL close look over and feel free to ask more questions.I hope this helps.GK

Can you take some photos of it and post them here? We can give you a better idea about it then.
