However, I have always been able to email RIA and ask for more/detailed pictures of any item. They always send back a ton more pictures than I really need. If there is something you really want to see, just email them.

Unfortunately, they do not come down on the price upon request. Looks like this month's 'Premier' auction was just that - lots of people with VERY deep pockets paying double the estimated high value of many items. Oh, well. Wait for the next Powerball drawing.

Eccellent, i wish i knew they will provide more pictures.
Probably would not after the fact?
Would love to see more of that one.
The price may very well have been due to the fact he was the general manager of Inland or maybe the fact he was instrumental in the Inland Childrens chorus?

Thanks for posting this thread I own XB-20 that was given to A.W. Phelps a manager at Inland. It has the case with it's custom cleaning rod with patches and two AI 15 round magazines NIW with a sling NIW marked Inland. It was displayed at the OGCA show May 2011. Mine has a flip site and type one band.

"During the later stages of WWII the General Motors Inland Div. designated a specific serial number block of M1 carbines/receivers that were intended to be used as either experimental or prototype carbine."

This is a confusing statement.

What were the experiments being done on Carbine, near the end of the war?

'Prototype'? After a couple million had already been made? What am I missing here?

And Whittaker gave it away?

From early on Inland had x prefix guns.many were used for prototypes.
Some were destroyed.
Durring production some were given to special people, later when production was winding down they assembled and gave out more to key employees.

Whittaker passed away, family probably sold it off

Appears to be used by one of the owners with little care taken for what they had.

I wouldn't think those stock marks were there when its was presented.

www.inlandchorus.com

"The Inland Children's Chorus was founded in 1936 by Colonel Wallace S. Whittaker, for 20 years Inland's General Manager."

"The Inlander includes photos of the concert group and Chorus members with Wallace Whittaker, founding General Manager of Inland."

He was the GM of Inland prior to J.D. O'Brian. To what year I do not know.
Interesting is a picture of him standing on a WW1 airplane wing with Charles Kettering as well as several others to show just how strong the wing was.
