It looks great. More than likely it had been refinished at least once before in its life - whats another going to hurt?

On top is my 5.0 Inland and below is my 4.7 Underwood. Below left is my Colt M1991A1 and below right is my Ruger pre Mark 1 .22LR I bought new in 1965.

Mike 1:

The repro flip sight and early barrel band cost roughly $50 from Numrich. I found a gunsmith about an hour from my house (central Illinois) who installed the parts and did the reparking for $125. The business is called Pro-tech Engineering and the owner restores M1 carbines, Garands and other WW2 weapons. the turn around time was about 10 days. He said he is getting quite a few CMP guns coming in lately so I'm not sure how that effects the turn around time. As for my IBM I just refinished the stock and will post new pic soon.

Well I took the plunge and refinished the stock of my IBM. The old finish was very dark and had a shiny varnish. Once the varnish was removed, I discovered a Rock Island Arsenal cartouche and the crossed cannons. Overall I am pretty happy with it.

Finding that RIA stamp is a great find. Very nice stockset. Looks great.

After going on a $pending $pree on Epay, I have dressed up the CMP Inland and Winchester import with USGI Inland stocks. The carbine on top is an Inland 703k with HI stock, and Underwood MU handguard. The Winchester is sporting an IO High wood cut-down M1 stock with an unmarked handguard. I like the new-old look!

Hello I am new to forum thought i would add pics of my NPM Serial 1488xxx bought this about 5 years ago. I also have a Universal which surprisingly is a good shooter. The NPM has a receiver problem and needs work, maybe a new receiver. Anyway here are the pics

close up of the inland. most of the components appear to be (I'll use the term "correct" rather than original, cause i don't have any way possible of knowing if they are or not)...
flat bolt stamped O.I. with a 3, rounded lug shape
flat extractor stamped W.I.
type 1 firing pin stamped R.I.
Inland div barrel dated 8-43 with a proof "P" stamp M/w=2.5
milled front sight stamped N on top
early slide with 3/16 step ,flat rear box, v-top internal cut stamped PI(underlined)inside and an N on the bottom outside
inland trigger housing with vertical logo stamp, no oil hole, unmarked push button safety,RI stamped sear, hammer is stamped HI
trigger is stamped RI
Highwood stock with oval cut oiler slot, crossed cannons on right side of butt stock(barely visable) and a circled P on bottom of grip (also barley visable)
recoil plate is stamped with an upside down D.I.
hand guard is stamped OI,but it's a four rivet and it should be a two. oddly though it matches perfectly in color,wear,grain and texture. i can only assume that it was changed out very early on in this carbines life as it appears to me as though the stock and the hand guard have been together a long time. OI stamped in the slingwell
of coarse the rear sight was upgraded at some point to a milled adjustable and a type three barrel band was also installed. the mag catch is the only other suspect part I can see, it is stamped with an M and it should be plain faced according to what i've been able to find.
I'd like to find a nice old usgi sling and oiler for it, but i ain't in no hurry so i can wait for the right one to come along (so many fake ones out there) and i hope to score a correct mag release next weekend at a local show.
thanks for letting me share
Dennis

Ran across this photo of a Carbine in Japan in 1956 being used as a Guard weapon. I was researching some information about Johnson Air Force base where I lived as a kid for three years and this picture was posted on the Yahoo group where some of the people that used to be stationed or lived like I did hang out.



Don't appear they gave them any decent pants nor any magazines to use! I suspect it was a staged photo.

Do you by chance happen to have any dimensions and other info on the stands that you have your carbines on in this pic? I really like the idea and thought that I might build one for myself.

I'm thinking that I could replicate your work, but if you have some measurements, it sure would save some trial and error. In particular, the distance between the uprights and radius for the notches that the rifle sits in would be very nice to have. Also, is there any difference in the height of the uprights (i.e. does the pistol grip sit lover than the front of the stock)?

Thanks,
Mike
