The carbine’s barrel date is 10-42. The carbine’s serial number is 60935. The bore is in very fine bright condition. This gun has all the correct early parts intact. It has never been restored or rebuilt. This carbine has the correct double bevel trigger housing, dog leg hammer, flat blued bolt, half moon operating rod and correct early parts. The sights are original to this gun also. Inside the sling well there is carved initials of M. T. also there is small carved initials by the grip base of H.M.S. The stock is in very fine condition with all of the original finish intact. There is no damage or cracks to this “I” stock. The hand guard has the early wide groove feature. All of the metal parts have their original finish intact. The metal parts condition would rate a 96% overall condition. The wood condition would rate a 96% also. This carbine is a honest service used gun that has not been abused! These very early carbines have a very poor survival rate! These guns saw the brunt of the war as they were the first to be used starting in 1942. Many of the much latter production guns never saw service use. To find an early production carbine in original as issued condition is a real find today! I also have the original magazine pouch with early Inland magazines in the pouch. This pouch shows much service wear and use. This pouch came with this gun and will stay with it. This carbine would be a real highlight of any military collection or display!

For those folks that do not know me yet, I’m very hard of hearing on the phone. Therefore when you would call me, I will pick up the phone and tell you that I will call you right back. I have caller ID just so that you know, the reason for that is I cannot use a regular phone. I have to switch over to what is called a voice carry over phone. When I call you back you will hear my voice in our conversation, an operator will type your conversation to me on my phone view screen. With me reading what you are saying to me saves me a lot of confusion for me mishearing words.
I do want to talk to you and answer your questions without mistakes or miscommunications. This system works pretty good, so please be willing to be patient with my hearing loss.
My wife Marcia has fine hearing on the phone and is quite knowledgeable about firearms and is very able to help you over the phone.
