New Carbine

Out at the range today I stopped in the gunshop on my way out and saw a beat up looking carbine in one of those old Choate side folding stocks. Looking closer it turned out to be a mid -43 Inland with the flip sight and T1 band! Took her apart there and inside she was all early parts including the dogleg hammer and push button safety. OTD for less than $600 NOT import marked!

Stripped her down and cleaned years of junk and filth and powder residue off of her and then swapped the Choate for my only spare stock.... a late war M1A1 with the M2 field mod cut. I think it looks ok!

Does it look 'straight'? Damn right! What a great find for your stock. It looks perfect.

Nothing against the Choate stock, but it sure looks a whole lot better in the M1A1 stock!!

Nice find!
