J.R.; Congratulations on your sticky, it's about time. I think it has to be VERY informative or maybe it takes 100 posts to be a sticky, either way, glad to help put you over the top. My Inland BR is done, I'll try to get pictures up today.

We have had a lot folks view this thread. I know there are many more BR ( barreled receiver) carbines out there. Don't know if Orest would ever give a number close to the real number but now thanks to those of us who follow this thread, contribute to it AND don't forget the GITM. It did take a good bit of kissing up, just kidding. NOT!

I installed a repro flip sight.

I finished it the other day. Better weather today so I took it down range. After several rounds to find point of impact, I tapped the rear sight to the left. Here are pictures. The last picture is a fresh target with 5 rounds, 100 yrds, 6 o-clock hold.

I fired 30 rounds without one problem. Weather was not as good as I hoped so I'm back home by the fire.

Finally completed one BR. My sg was completed today with a sg hammer, trigger, trigger housing, sear, slide and bolt. The rear sight is a type 2 PI and the front a replacement RIA. Replacement "J" marked stock. I used a EI mag release and a flip safety.

Almost complete is my IBM BR all I need is a rear sight for it. I put it together with a SB bolt, JU trigger, IBM trigger housing and sear, AMB hammer, AOB slide. Front site is RIA. Stock is a SA I had. I used a HI mag release and a flip safety.

My thinking was that with the replcaement stock and front site's they are like post war rebuilds, I was trying to avoid the high cost on those two parts.
What is the correct rear site for IBM? I am going to use a type 2 or 3, because I like the adjustment option.
Pictures later this week.

Default Standard Products BR build

My Standard Products BR build is complete.

I am definately not as fast as some of you guys, but I took my time and am pleased with the results and final investment. Including the BR costs, I have about $400 to $425 total into this. No big savings when compared to the rack grade Inlands, however the Rack grade carbines are now history and this is a Std. Prod., so I think I did OK.

The "as arrived" BR photos are in the slideshow for reference, and I am very happy how it cleaned up. It took some rubbing, but using acetone eventually a lot of caked on black sticky goo came off and the park finish that was under it all is better than first expected.

It isn't fully "correct" by any stretch, but it isn't a totally random mix master either. In addition to the receiver, here are some highlights. There are still things I'm sure I'll be tweaking, but you all know how that goes.

- Correct dated Underwood barrel with .U. front sight
- Std Pro type III milled trigger housing (Inland and post war USGI guts)
- Std Pro type II bolt
- Std Pro type III slide
- Std Pro recoil plate (Winchester X bolt)
- Shield H milled type II rear sights
- nice color match J.M.O. type III band
- Solid SA M2 stock and 4 rivit matching unmarked handguard and USGI buttplate (IBM or maybe Inland - can't tell?)

Now to re-verify good headspace with this new bolt and it is off to the range. I have high hopes on how she will perform.

Take a look and let me know what you think.

Nice looking rifle and very nice slide show. You say (No big savings when compared to the rack grade) but doesn't it just feel better building it yourself. And especially when you get it to the range. I took my first BR build out yesterday and the first shot is kind of scary but after that they went off like clockwork and it felt good knowing that I brought this piece of salvage back to life.

..you better believe it! To even come close to break even cost is a double win in my book. While this is my first carbine buildup, I have 3 garands under my belt. It is hard to beat the level of satisfaction that you get from the process. Taking a "lost" rifle, carefully finding parts and building it up, and then to have it function flawlessly out of the gate is extremly rewarding (and educational) and it makes the rifles special in a personal way.

I know there are multiple sides to the build vs buy debate, but for me I will take the build route whenever I find a realistic oppertunity (i.e. cheap good CMP BR). And besides searching and buying parts keeps me from looking and buying complete rifles!

I seem to get in less trouble that way.
