1942 Production
Item Number: FW01368
Availability: SOLD.

Early WWII production Inland US M1 .30 carbine, serial number 31785, manufactured April – Aug 1942. Inland barrel dated August 1942 with a bright bore. Other components are mixed manufacturers, all are described below and shown in photos. No import marks.

This M1 carbine is in excellent used condition. All metal except springs has been reparkerized. No parts were ever pitted, but the finish was very worn and provided no corrosion protection. Parts photos are after refinish and before assembly. After assembly and test, there will be some normal minor finish wear from moving parts.

The carbine has been test fired and works perfectly. 15 round magazine, sling and oiler are included, along with a  reprint of the military field service manual.
