    1942 dated Inland M1A1 carbine. (Pics.)

    I suspect this 1942 barrel dated M1A1icon carbine is in its original WWII configuration....Sn. 123829.

    Very nice, I have it's twin 114xxx 11-42 barrel date. There seems to be several M1A1s floating around in this range. Is there a number written in pencil on the left inside of the stock? Mine has the number 12 written upside down. Thanks for sharing.

    Looks good. I'd be interested in seeing the sides of the reciever and trigger housing, the rear of the trigger guard, and the portion of the barrel hidden by the stock.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Newscotlander this is the best I could do for now regarding the photos you requested....they might not be the perspectives you wanted, but the gun is not close at hand.

    dbarn,

    I don't remember seeing any pencil markings, and my notes don't make any reference in that regard????

    The number on mine was overlooked for several years. It took a bright flash light to find it. It's actually located on the left side of the slide well. Not sure of the significance or how many were marked this way. Have also heard of ink stamped numbers. Here's a photo.

    Looks good. Don't see anything wrong with it.

    Two things I was looking for.
    1. The two tone blued appearance of the receiver and barrel.
    2. Matching wear marks between the stock and action.

    I see signs of both. The more pictures, the better.

    I have an early M1A1icon (154574). It does not have the OI in the slide well. Does yours have the OI in slide well?

    Newscotlander,

    M1 and M1A1icon carbines are not my collecting focus.....so please forgive me if I don't know where the slide well is?

    Do you see the marking?




    dbarn,

    I never thought to look there?

    David

    This is the balance of my M1 carbine experience. Both carbines are Bavarian marked.
    Both of these carbines are on Jim Mock's web site. (The link to Jim's web site is below.)

    Rightous M1A1icon.... Honest wear on an old soldier.... Just like you like to get them... Nice photos too. My early M1A1 had IO in the slide well.
