    M2 without Date

    Hey gents

    Last weekend I visit a friend who has an M2 Inland SN 7225XXX in pretty good shape, the barrel is marked with the P and as Inland MFG Div General Motors but without a date and the flaming bomb, why?

    Btw would you share a link for a video, manual, or tutorial to fully disassemble the all trigger house, please?

    Thank you in advance

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    There were several times during Inlands production that barrels were not dated. If I remember right the last one was about August 1944. Your barrel could have been stuck in a bin for many months before being used. Do a search on M2 carbines on U tube. I think you will find what you need there.
