    Inland M1 Carbin - 6/44 D-Day

    Dears Friends and Collectors,

    I would be very happy to receive Your impressions, suggestions and ideas about this Inland M1icon Carbine - serial # 5,268,xxx June of 1944 (D-Day).
    Unfortunatly no marks over the hammer.
    Were the trigger group and all the other parts manufactured by Inland within a reasonable window of time ?
    Price required Euro 600 ... about $750

    Here are all the pictures I could take.
    Thank You.

    First, nice carbine. I've never seen a flaming bomb on an Inland receiver or bolt like that. I wonder when it was done. The only thing that seems off is the mag catch button and the hammer, although I may be missing something.

    Thank you, deldriver.
    I asked to the dealer who has the carbine at moment and he told me that hammer and trigger are marked "SG" (Saginaw) so maybe not correct parts.
    But I can always look for them in USAicon and replace them later on.

    Nice carbine, but could not have been used at Normandy on June 6, 1944. It has some later parts and as you said some substituted parts, so it's not in WWII configuration. Those strange little stamps are not Ordnance marks - they are the marks of another country which had possession of the carbine at some point. This is also evidenced by the number stamped on the RH side of the receiver - not done by the U.S.

    Thank you, INLAND44.

    The number "6726" has been for sure stamped in Italyicon, that's the catalogue number for the M1icon Carbine.

    If you type "6726" in the first field and press "INVIA" key, you will see the M1 Carbine listed there.

    Round bolt and we can't see if it's high wood or not. Not sure if the adjustable rear sight would be correct or not.

    Nice carbine regardless of all that!

    I would give a better than average chance that the bolt and rear sight are original to the carbine. The hammer and mag catch can be field replacement pieces especially the mag catch.

    It has been through at least one rebuild as it also has the type 4 safety,the second P stamped on the stock and the hammer and trigger but the rest of it is correct for the serial number.
