Pawn Shop Carbine

This morning I found an Inland carbine that seems to be an all original early one. The serial # is 8571x, it has an 11/42 barrel, the stock is I cut high wood with the Ord wheel on the right side. flaming bomb and Io in the oiler cutout, type 1 band, all the internals are Inland, the pin for the trigger housing has a spring retainer, checkered push button safety, flip rear sights, I can't see any markings on the sight. But the darn thing cost me $800.00.

At $800, you got a steal! Parts alone are worth more than that.

Re: Pawn Shop Carbine

Around here, eight pigs is about the entry-level price for ANY USGI carbine now, and most of them don't sound nearly as nice as yours. I think you got a deal.

On closer inspection when I stopped shaking I found an s on the side of the rear sight I didn't see it at first because of some crud. According to my book that's right for this vintage.

If you didn't rip your pants pulling your wallet, you must not have wanted it badly enough... :P

Re: Pawn Shop Carbine

The trouble was I was trying to negotiate with the guy, the tag said 849.00, and I felt like I was shaking like a leaf and hoping he wouldn't notice.

If you pulled that off, maybe you could take up poker for a living.

It seems on a par with the current price.

I assume that you know that the high wood is at risk for cracking if you shoot the gun [much], which is why that aspect of the design was modified.

I have several carbines to shoot, and since this one is the only one I've ever seen that seems to have missed the rebuild program I won't be shooting it all that much. Although I probably should before Dianne takes it away from me. I'll try to post a pic tomorrow.

Well done sir, well done indeed. You’re going to have a ball with that thing. Shooting an M1 Carbine is about the most fun you can have with all your clothes on. (not that I’ve ever tried shooting one naked)

You said it, you never know where that hot brass will wind up.

Carbine ammo

Have any of you guys seen any deals on soft point hunting rounds for the M1.
Its true the fmj stuff just punches holes, but at close range with hunting rounds I've never had a deer or hog run off after a single shot.

Almost all the ammo for this seems to have bought up.

I Can't Speak for Market Conditions...

...But Speer began offering a softpoint Gold Dot load for the Carbine a while back.

(As an aside, according to testing done by Bert DuVernay, when he headed the S&W Academy, Federal's JSP performed essentially the same as FMJ, with the Winchester "hollow softpoint" expanding a bit more than Remington's JSP.)

Hey Bearcat

Where are you in Oregon? I'd love to see that sweet M1! I have one too but not that vintage...you got a great deal my friend...if your anywhere near the coast, I've got access to 50 acres of prime real estate in the forests...
And I think it's running low on lead
