Thanks! May sound stupid, but is there any way to determine the date of its manufacture?

Only in that after a certain date the government stopped requiring differently-marked oilers, and International Silver marked them all IS after that. I don't know the date, but I know that IS is correct for my 4,927,xxx Inland of around 6/44. At least, that's what I have picked up here on the Forum.

Some time around mid 43 International Silver was given permission to stop coding them for a specific manufacter and was told to just code them IS. Originally, International Silver wanted to stop putting any code on them at all but good ole Uncle Sam said "NO."

Thats cool! This means my oiler is correct for my 1942 made carbine

Thanks very much to both of you!

Probably either an IU or an IS would be correct.
