Hello guys I always wanted to get a decent looking M1 carbine and when i called one of the gunshop today one of them have an Inland carbine and he said its in excellnet condition so i went a head and checked it out, I used to own a plainfield m1 and i think this one is a lot better than that ( i hope) so anyway I put it on layaway for my xmas gift for myself , here she is.

Nice looking rifle. I always wanted one, ever since I used to watch the TV show "Combat" back in the day. :)

Never did get one though. :(

Oh well..............

I only wish that there were enough of
the those little babies to go around for
everyone. But, that is not the case.

Enjoy yours. That was my first issue
rifle, until an M2 came my way.

Very nice.

I got one about a year and a half ago. A buddy of mine got it back from his former girlfriend. Her brother painted it. It was really ugly. Got all the paint stripped, and rubbed in several coats of BLO. It looks really nice now. Got it for a steal, too. $150.00.

WOW! that looks sharp. my first rifle was an inland M-1 ,1957.
the stock on mine was very dark walnut with figures of tan and purple through out.
i have some remorse about selling it.
i know you will enjoy it:)

USGI M1 Carbines were not made after 1945

i received it from my father as a 'first rifle in1957.'
he brought it home from the war. he was a navy gunnery chief, taught .30 - 40mm at califorina naval gunnery range near monteray by the sea califorina.
figured the 1957 would be interpreted as year of first rifle.
