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.

If so, the seller is a bit optimistic IMO.

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

Oh yes, very collectable....I think it's that rare "INLAND PETERSEN" isn't it? 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.

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.

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.

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.!

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.
