    Thanks! Yep, the number offset to the right is blurred and looks kind of wide. I've still got the action out of the stock - will try getting another picture outdoors. - Bob

    I've got a few more pictures of this "current" 408K Inland, so will post below. Somewhere, I've read that Inland may have used some unmarked Type 1 "bull-nose" hand guards in the Spring of '43 and I...

    I can tell that Dave has "been there & done that" with the Fords! Changing axles and transmissions on pre-49's isn't much fun - I think I broke and repaired 6-7 transmissions and a couple of axles. ...

    I learned how to do those from my Dad repairing picking bags on the farm where he worked when I was growing up. Probably have to buy a box of 100! One idea I have too, is to use one of those short...

    Louis, I understand what you and Jim (BAR) are saying, but I'm likely going to keep it much the way it looks right now. It's hard to explain, but Jon D pretty much "summed it up" in the post just...

    Dave: I'm attaching the best pics I could get of the areas you asked to see. I posted some like these before on a different Inland and was told by someone they weren't correct - wrong s/n block or...

    Charlie: That was intended to be a compliment, not a dig. Nope, you can't have my pickup and ruin it - you might take that as as dig, though! The Ford has changed a bit since you saw it last. I...

    Jim: Don't know if you've bought one lately but they're not US made now - don't think they have been for a long time. The last good one I had was for a Mini-30 about 20 years ago. Right now, I...

    Dave, I'll try to get those pictures - will not be as easy as the one for Charlie, though. That "shooter" IBM of mine that you liked years ago, has a trigger pull around 5 to 5-1/2. Thanks! - Bob

    If it would reveal a hidden CC it might be worth trying, but out of respect for the Navy Vets I hate to mess up their work. It looks like a very heavy coat of Varathane - it's easy to make matters...

    Yes, that's correct and even with original GI slings, not all of them cooperate like they should - stocks can vary, and a lot of the D tips can be especially difficult. This one has an 1/8" thick...

    Yeah, that alone helps the trigger pull a lot. I've got an S'G' with the original hammer and spring and the pull on it is close to 10 lb. I just checked this one and it's right at 6 lb. From the...

    Should I Have Passed On This Inland?

    I bought this one about 6 months ago on a hunch of what might be on the inside. It sat for 2-3 months before I decided to pull it apart. First problem was I couldn't get the sling off, and still...

    Here's one with a cast recoil plate - has the gaps, but I thought it was due to the "repro" stock. Are you sayin' the plate by itself can cause it? - Bob

    That's $28.50 each before shipping - more than double what I'd pay for a parked magazine. I've never bought a single one of them. :dunno: - Bob
