    Gun show find

    Went to a show yesterday and found some collector grade parts. One thing I was looking for was a relatively early Inland bolt. I think I hit the jackpot for someone else, but not for me. I found an early bolt alright! It is a very early type 2, complete. The ejector is odd in that it appears to be a completely flat tip. The firing pin is a type 1. The extractor spring plunger appears to be a modified type 1. These are very difficult to identify. The reason that I believe it is a modified type 1 is that normally the cut out on the tip is half way across the tip. On this one, it is less than half way leaving a round cone at the tip going part way down before hitting the cut out area. On top of that, the extractor is a modified type 1 (early type 2) with the rounded cut on the bottom of the flat. I have another one reserved in my collection so I know what they look like. An early bolt like this is what is needed for 4 and very low 5 digit Inlands. If anyone is trying to restore a real early Inland and needs this bolt, let me know and maybe we can arrange a deal. BTW, the marking is in the left lug and is small thin letters barely visible (AI).

    Where I am there is no such thing as Vietnam vintage or older firearms in gun shows. It's all PLASTIC guns. Nothing old just new stuff that looks and feels more like junk then a firearm. I guess that just makes me old fashioned. Real nice pickup Jim. You did good.

    When we had gun shows in San Diego, most of the show was like that and Chinese vendors selling cheap-o Chinese knives and swords.

    Charlie, yes on the long stem. Slight difference at the pointed end. Your picture shows the cut angling to the center of the tip. Mine doesn't angle to the tip. It is parallel to center, but not right on center, unlike later ones. The mod was done a bit more neatly. And neither of my type 2 extractors are as clearly marked with the W. Both are faintly stamped.
