Description:

This is a solid representative example of an original configuration World War II U.S. M1A1 Paratrooper carbine that was manufactured by Inland. "N" marked blade front and "S" marked two-leaf rear sights, with a Inland "11-42" barrel, flat bolt, checkered button safety and "E1" magazine catch. The correct high wood stock is fitted with a 2-rivet handguard, Type I barrel band, crossed cannons on the bottom of the grip, brass rivets on the brown leather cheek pad, and cast-in numbers on the steel buttplate. Includes a green canvas sling and "U.S." marked canvas case.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 70% plus of the thin original parkerized finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina, primarily on edges and high spots. The revarnished wood is very good with some moderate wear/dings where the stock has been folded against it and otherwise generally minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent. The case is fine with some mild wear.
