Inland lineout Rock-Ola.....fewer than 2,000 made. I missed the IBM/AO lineout to NPM. I wanted them both, but someone else got there first. To give you an idea of how scarce these are, UnQualitys are twice as common. Inland lineouts to Underwood are 6 times as common. Underwood lineouts to NPM are 7 times as common. As you guys know, NONE of these is a common variant. All of them can be called rare. You guys were discussing not wanting to buy without seeing it and having it in your hands. If you remember, I stated that the situation for me depended on the seller. This one is from a well known collector. So as I said in my earlier post, "sight unseen".

This is an interesting post. Discussions about ‘fakes’ are always interesting and sometimes depressing (when you realize that you have purchased some – as I have). In fact, I would still be purchasing from a few of the more highly publicized humpers, if not for the wise input from those ‘in the know’ and sites like this.

M1 Carbines are a difficult firearm to learn; far more difficult than the Garand, in my opinion. Often, even the experts have differing opinions as to originality of a particular piece. I especially enjoy however, when a master admits that he owns several thousands of dollars in faked parts. It puts the problem in perspective.

I am a novice-student of the M1 Garand and Carbine. Probably always will be, as I am aware that others out there will always have infinitely more knowledge of the weapon than I. I gain confidence as time goes by and I read, handle and purchase additional pieces, however I always rely on an expert when I am over my head (which is often).

My humble advice is to follow the wise counsel of Bolo-7. Read every word that he and other highly educated Carbine people write. Join the Carbine club and continue to ask questions of the most knowledgeable amongst us. Oh, and did I mention to read everything that Bolo-7 writes?

Unfortunately, that is how most of us learned. We got humped parts then found out later that they weren't real. I don't think anyone who has been collecting for any length of time hasn't gotten stung several times. I've got at least five repops/fakes sitting in my parts box right now. I use them as temporary parts when I'm restoring a nice carbine and want to sell removed parts for funds to purchase the correct ones. They keep the carbine serviceable even if they are fakes.

Well Drill,
Thanks for the kind words, but I too am still learning.
CBR and Jimb has helped me a lot in the past and still do.
I know little of early carbines because I could not afford to buy them and there are no other collectors near me so I can look at their collections of early carbines and learn. There is so much to learn about the manfacturer of the carbine. I just saw this weekend a 3.2 SG receiver(I think) with what looks like upside down serial numbers buffed half out and a six digit number in its place. The numbers look like Inland large numbers. They are not hand stamped. I thought it could be a Inland to IP transfer that S'G' finished but it has SG on the left and it is a SG wide tang, if I remember correctly. Don't know if there is a seventh number there. I did not look at it very long. Just another big carbine question.
