WWII issue US M1 .30 Carbine. Manufacturer is Quality
Hardware, serial number 4830xxx. Inland barrel has a bright bore. Most metal parts have

Receiver: Oct 1943 - March 1944. Marked “U.S. CARBINE
CAL. 30 M1”, “QUALITY H.M.C.” Spring tube receiver, excellent condition, no
marked “Q” on end
Barrel: Inland 1-44, short skirt, with firing proof “P”. Exterior is in very good condition, no
pitting. Bore is bright and shiny. The barrel has been
counterbored about 1/4 “, see photo. The carbine was probably in a rebuild lot
where all were counterbored, rather than because of any damage to this one,
since the overall condition of the barrel and receiver are excellent. It is almost
impossible for a counterbored crown to be damaged.
