Which type slide?

Which type slide would I need for a 5076011 S/N Inland, a type 4 or 5?

Thanks!

They're on ebay most of the time, and I don't know of a faked Type V slide. Quite often they'll be as-new.

Fakes, no, but do watch out for welded and refinished demils.

There are some M2 slides on the DPMS web site for $44. Is that a good buy? I just bought a refinished type 4 slide at a gun show for $30, and it's not as perfect as I originally thought it to be.

the problem with slides are two...a bent arm (rare) and a worn recvr rail lug (common). Some have a piece welded on a worn lug. It is hard to tell without seeing unfortunately. I would bring calipers to a show and measure them. A while back wayne posted the dimensions of a good lug...do a search, or maybe someone with one in front of them right now can measure it and post the dimension of the lug.

That is the important thing to look at. I would want one without any modification that has a lot of lug left.

I wouldn't put an M2 slide on an M1, but I don't see why you couldn't...that's a type VI I think...I would keep looking for a type V..$30 is a fair price. There are plenty about, but I would be weary of a worn lug. I had one, and it jumped the rail when firing...annoying and needs immediate replacement to avoid damaging the recvr rail.

this is the lug to look at, measure its length out of the page and make sure it meets specs...hopefully someone will post that spec...if it does, I would buy it. You can use a straight edge metal ruler to check that the arm is not bent. Also look at the markings and make sure they are crisp and that the finish is right. Then it should be good to go.

Are those pits in that one, or just the way the picture came out? I'm looking for one that measures around .238 or .240. I've got one that's .236 and two others that are down to around .226-.228. What did the one measure that jumped the rail?

Just a pic from the internet. (just in case you weren't sure what I was talking about...you obviously are)....that lug should be about
0.240 inches. 0.236 should be fine. don't know about the one I had, but it was badly worn. anyone who buys a slide off an auction sight unseen should ask for this dimension! too easy to get someone elses worn POS.

You can test it in your receiver easy enough. I just put it on without the bolt in place or the spring, turn it upside down (the rail thn is at 12 o'clock. And slide the slide back and forth with some outward pressure, it should not pop out anywhere until it gets to the recess. lube it well while you do it...so there is no unecessary wear! Hard to do this when looking at a pic on ebay...and few ever post this important dimension.

The carbine has two weak points...this lug and the extractor..both need to be cared for and checked. Hope that helps.
