    Nice Carbine. I had a similar one that I sold three years ago through Rock Island Auction Company for 3250 and the buyer paid a hefty premium on top of that. That looks to be in better overall condition than mine. The serial range was the same and it had all original Inland parts and in an as issued configuration.
    I want to add that, in my opinion that there is little interest in the latter ones on GB because they are way overpriced. We all know that the 1st rule in selling is start high because you can come down but its harder to go up. People who are really interested in selling will price the item accordingly.

    Oh you got a dandy ! If I had to guess $3800.ish on the low side the high side will depend on bore condition, front band, front sight, bolt and the trigger housing internals.

    Don't get the wrong impression of this approach but how I approach these is looking for the items that don't fit the pattern. If those are present then it's a matter of figuring out why it looks that way. One of those would be the story of who was "issued" this one.

    The parts look good from the pics. The rear sight appears shifted way left which was common, but I'd like to see a better picture of the staking on the right side of the sight dove tail. On this monitor the rear staking doesn't appear proper for a flip sight. An in focus picture could tell much about the Carbine itself, but not much about the stock. The coloration of the Carbine gives me the impression that it was refinished but the rear sight wasn't. In the left side profile picture the plain where the rear sight meets the dove tail looks too clean and debris free to have been together very long. If any part of a Carbine doesn't fit 100% original config, then that introduces alterations which detract from the value. In orig unaltered config these can be $5000. If there are ANY alterations it will be looked at as some level of restoration and will knock an easy 1000 off the value and typically much more than that.

    For reference, a decent high wood stock only was at our local show for a cash price of $1300 recently. I know the history and it had a crack professionally repaired by Frank and the grip could've been just a little bit better. The stock came from Gunbroker and was a complete M1A1icon with Winchester action installed and was bought this past spring. It had a Buy It Now on it for I believe $1599. Another high wood walked in our local show for $1500 this spring. The action was an original early Inland with dogleg, type I band, but the stock has two cracks and a couple of repop parts. Another with a Rockola action was here this month for $3500 which was too much for it.

    Regarding the first page statement, the Germans weren't fascists. They were nationalist minded socialists which means they wanted a strong nation for their Germanicon citizens only, and not for the migrants and bankers who were bleeding them out after WWI. They were government authoritarians which is a FAIL in my book right off the bat. The Italians were fascists.

    Let's talk about the carbine and not progress into political definitions.

    I agree. I would've addressed that on the first page if I could be a moderator.

    Sold to a forum member, he PM'd me, sent bunches of pics. Received it for inspection, and bought it.
    He can add more if he desires.
    Thanks for all the responses and help.
