THX Deldriver, that's the one missing from the pile, maybe in with the last 2 data sheets I did, both Inland 6 digits. I'll find it and grade myself.
Remember Inland used both the horizontal and diagonal plates in this first block. Inland had 2 suppliers of butt plates. I know Seymour was one and thought to be the maker/suppliers of the square/horizontal plate.
The diagonals also used, I just can't remember the makers name......... something like C&G Co (?)

Friends and Sponsors
I do believe your carbine is ok with a 26 coil.
I know they were using both the early 22 and later 26 coil in your range. 26 coil was in use before the flat hammer came in use.
I'd think your fine.
USGI, I found a note here where I have ballpark figures about Inlands use of T1 and T2 Hg's. At about ~250k the shallow type II HG was most commonly found on thought to be originals, of course there was overlap.

I learned a lot from this review and copied the pics on the auction site for future reference. Round faced type one band with upside down U for the serial range in particular. Thanks!!

I missed commenting on "One of my concerns", maybe side tracked when rambling on about the Julian dating system.
The Hand Guard: Though serial range correct, just doesn't seem to show the wear that the stock shows. Pictures aren't the greatest, but it appears to have much less wear and tear.
I do believe this stock could look really nice after a deep cleaning and some fresh oil.
Thx to an inquire by fellow member New2Brass, I more than likely would have forgot about this concern.
Noooo, I did forget!
Sometimes it's hard to keep all things straight when your trying to look over 3 or 4 carbines at a time for members.
P.S. HD, I still haven't found NL #346, But was hoping I was close.
Appreciate the kind words.
Charlie, I noticed the hand guard too. I'm thinking it might have been changed in an attempt to make it "correct." Tried to post earlier, but Windows 10 wants to have me look at "little blue circles" - that gets old. Will restart the thing or maybe just go to an older computer and post again later. The bolt on my 476K Inland is marked "O.I. 3" and my data sheet is checked off as it being a rounded lug - but not sure and have a question mark there. It's kind of pointed, too! The barrel is an undated Inland. Have another Inland 755K and the barrel is dated 7-43. For some reason, I have a note about the 26 coil hammer spring being "opposite" wound. I'll check into that later. I knew about the two types of buttplates being used, but had been advised on the site earlier that the hammer spring had been changed out. - Bob
I checked more data sheet info on my Inland 476K and found it has an "EI" marked mag catch, "W.I." extractor, and "NI" firing pin. The swivel is unmarked, but the barrel band has an upside down "UI" - but it could be just a "U" with an indent from the edge of the stamp next to it. What do you guys think? I'll attach a picture. Another similarity to the OP's Inland is the band spring with a "line" on it. I couldn't find a picture showing the "opposite" wound hammer spring I mentioned - will have to recheck that next time I have it out of the wood. - Bob
Pointed vs rounded is a bit misleading. If you look at data sheet you will see that the most forward part of lug is what to look at. If it is at top of lug it is referred as rounded. However it can be pointy or rounded.

Basically by lowering the point of contact it increased the dwell time of bolt opening. (It delays time for bolt to open)
This was done to decrease flash at breech. The gasses were allowed to get further down the barrel before unlocking bolt.
Later slides also were made to increase dwell.
The great thing here is the parts do not have to match. Early or late and the carbine functions just fine.
