Getting sick of CMP Inland reports yet?
Inland SN# 84867 arrived yesterday.
barrel: Inland Div. 11/42 (I think this is in the correct time frame)
front sight: Type I (marked N)
rear sight: SA
bolt: flat, marked AT on left lug
barrel band: Type III marked JMQ on left, EM-Q under bayonet lug
operating slide: Type V marked PI (underlined) inside, 7160091 under
trigger housing: Type II Inland
trigger sear: W
hammer: Type III S'G'
mag catch: W over WA
stock: walnut potbelly, P on pistol grip, stamped AAA on left (no FAT)
handguard: 4 rivet walnut marked OI
recoil plate: RIA
safety: Type IV
This was as best I could determine from Reisch.
Any ideas about the stock stamp AAA?
And the AT on the bolt threw me. The bolt park is blacker than the rest of the rifle.
My son and I took it to the range today and it shot fine...4-5" groups at 100 yds with S & B ammo, despite a rear sight that travels sideways in its dovetail and needs to be restaked.
CMP has come through again, and I take my hat off to the Italians
for taking good care of these little loaners. A fair amount of grime and dried cosmoline to clean off but no rust anywhere and a shiny bore. Great history, great shooter.

Never get sick of USGI Carbines. The bolt is probably an Autotyre made for Inland (AI) with the bottom of the seriffed I worn, may have a number stamped there ( left lug) also. The stock marking is
an Augusta Georgia Arsenal marking , from rebuild or inspection.
That brings to mind a question I've had about the IT carbines. I wonder does anyone have info as to when the IT's acquired them. Were they sent over a period of time or all togther and when? They must have been bought by the IT's as opposed to given, otherwise they wouldn't have been eligible for re-importation. Any info??
