    I can't tell for sure what that number is, but found pics of the stock on my 476K Inland (undated barrel) and it appears to read "147 3". Still would like to find another one with a definite 5 to...

    He probably had to look it up, too! While watching a movie with the wife last night, I did take a peek at WB for the answer. Came up with an abbreviated version of the same thing.

    Charlie, I think I have an Inland with one of those bands and looked up the maker one time. Can't remember right now but will take some time this evening and see if I can find it. Just realized I...

    Jon, your estimate is a little high! Don't know how many you've seen, but my total is probably a half dozen or less. Before I replied earlier today, I was able to visualize your pencil drawings in...

    Finally Got The Sling Off!

    My goal was to get the sling and oiler removed and still have the sling capable of being reinstalled. To do that, I needed to drill out the rivet and replace it with a post (barrel) screw. The...

    Charlie, The Inland "SI" (sans serif) front sights were made by R.D. Sedgley, Inc. - I found this in WarBaby pages 335 and 1145. - Bob

    Jon - you've almost got me convinced, but I'm thinking the heights of the numbers in that first group of (3) would've all been about the same. For example, a 5 would be about as tall as the 2 or 8...

    I thought it could be 126 3 and Jon saw a 5 instead of a 2. Either way, that date would be about right with my 4-43 barrel, I think. I have other pictures to add, but need to head for town right...

    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. ...

    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
