$2000 carbine.
 
I came across this on a carbine forum just now. The seller wants $2000 for a "collector" carbine. Now I might be missing something here. There is not much info on the little carbine. 6 digit serial #, flip sight, sling and oiler.
Check it out and tell us what you think.

Can't view the listing if not 'registered'.

Isn't EVERY .30 Carbine a 'collector'?

campperrykid 07-09-2011 05:30 PM

Amazing , I clicked the link , did the name & password thing .
And got locked out.

Read that site a few time. Don't think it is very active - have tried to raise an admin because of login problems both through email and posting an "please contact me thread"
As for the carbine in the top down view of the rear site I looks to me as a cast part in the side view I might be picking up some mill marks but can't be sure. On the stocks cc looks awful new but am not able to compare to known good one right now (do cannons look a little bottle shaped?). Also not a lot of pictures for 2k

It is a good site but it has slowed down. The carbine is nice but maybe I'm missing something - it doesn't seem like a nice Inland is worth $2000.

Don't want to register on another site, but is it this one?

http://forum.pafoa.org/firearms-6/14...tor-grade.html

If so, the seller is a bit optimistic IMO.

Looks good (personally, I've never seen an ugly one); maybe knock off $75 per cat hair? (x 3 = $225).

What's the bumpy gig sitting at the bottom of the ramp?

Something about the set doesn't warrant $2k... maybe close, and then again, maybe not close.

Based on the few photos it looks original to me. Not a $2000 Carbine IMHO. I would want to see more photos before making an offer on that one.......:D

Someone, Please buy it. wtmr, you out there?

wtmr 07-09-2011 09:09 PM

its bit steep for today

Fishman 07-09-2011 10:08 PM

Maybe if it was a wee bit older and had a 42 dated barrel. If I was going to spend that kind of money on a carbine, it would probably be from CMPs auction site.

Same carbine, same pics. BTW, I have 12 "Collector Grade" carbines in my safe. Never knew they were worth THAT much !!

col b 07-10-2011 06:46 AM

Oh yes, very collectable....I think it's that rare "INLAND PETERSEN" isn't it? :D Is that a crack down the side under the band spring all the way to the slide?

That's the part I always wonder about: why can't sellers who are asking a premium take decent pics? Or at least pics that look like they weren't shot with a cell phone camera by candlelight in a closet.

Tuna 1 07-10-2011 12:52 PM

From the pictures shown it is an original Inland. The stock is from the change over period between the type 1 and type 2. during the spring of 1943. But the price is a bit high for it I think.

J.R.2009 07-10-2011 03:59 PM

Tuna 1, how would you know how original it was with no more of a description than was given and not many "telling" pics ?
I'm not saying you are wrong, you, BQ and several others shock and amaze me how much knowledge you boys have.:)

+1 JR, it's x-ray vision.:D....I have to be able to see the trigger, sear, hammer, front sight, slide, bolt, handguard, mag catch, safety and a whole bunch of other markings and parts that I just can't see.....old eyes just don't do it!!

todd440 07-11-2011 12:35 PM

That's not as bad as the 11,900 dollar "X" marked on GB. I can see now that Meth IS a problem. This dude must be sampling.!

Skytop 07-11-2011 03:30 PM

Hey There, the M1 Carbine 4-43 is mine! Thanks for looking and commenting. Here are some additional pictures. By the way those were not cat hairs, they are Golden Retriever hairs and the deduct for them is $15 per. Also, no split in the wood.

No offense meant, Skytop... it's a very nice rifle. It's just that most guys willing/able to spend that much on a carbine will want to see pics of all the parts to verify everything is as it should be. A field strip at least and preferably a detail strip with tons of pics will get you better results.

Skytop 07-11-2011 04:50 PM

Hey no problem! I have never taken the gun apart. 1911's, no problem. But this gun..... If someone was interested I would certainly learn to do it.

Popcop 07-11-2011 05:12 PM

Did you guys see the IP carbine at Riverbank Armory that sold for $6,900.00!?

I'm sure that someone can provide a link to field stripping info.
