    Very nice, Sniper.
    I got bit by the Carbine bug in the early 70's with a Universal. That one is long gone, but was followed years later by another Universal. Then an Auto Ordnance reproduction of an early model M1. And finally a real USGI, a 1943 Inland.
    Sniper - your Inland was rebuilt after the war, as evidenced by the barrel band with bayonet lug. It also has the late model rear sight and the flip safety instead of the push button.
    I can't tell from the picture, does it have the flat bolt or later round bolt?
    Carbines are collectable not only because there were 10 manufacturers that built them, but also so many possible variations, even down to how many holes in the top of the handguard - 2 or 4.
    My Inland looks like yours, with the exception of the bayonet lug, I don't have one. It's something I plan to add, along with an M-4 bayonet.

    Thanks for the info Big Al,

    I don't have any details on the bolt. I took the photo while on a trip back home to see the folks. The Carbine is in my Pop's safe back in Texas...

    New pic of my Grandad's M1 Carbine that was recently passed down to me from my Pop. It was made by the Inland Mfg. division of General Motors in 1944...

    Thank you Gentlemen.

    Don't know about all that, but I'm definitely pushing the limits of how many guns will fit in a safe... :confused:
