How is a barreled receiver an M1A1? I'm not trying to dispute your statement, just trying to learn. I thought what made an M1A1 was the paratrooper stock. I have a nice CMP M1 Carbine with a AA marked stock. The pictures of your CMP Auction link only show a barreled receiver. What am I missing?

It came to the CMP as an M1A1 with the stock and arsenal
paperwork a dozen(or more) years ago, it came to auction as a barreled
receiver, when packed for shipment the paperwork caught
up, "M1A1" is how the serial number and certificate list it.

I'm not clear on what the barreled action has to do with an M1A1. Was it shipped to you as a barreled action or did it come in a correct stock?

It isn't an M1A1 anymore, it's just an Inland barreled receiver in that serial number range, sorry.

"..."M1A1" is how the serial number and certificate list it."
I would think if "paperwork or certificate" lists it as a M1A1, then it is a M1A1 and it was auctioned without a stock.

its an M1A1 without the stock

Difference is that M2 is stamped on the receiver. 70,000 Inland M1 carbines between 65,000 and 4,950,000 and 70,000 Inlands between 4,950,000 and 6,650,000 can then all be called "M1A1 carbines"??? If it ain't in a folding paratroop stock, it ain't a paratrooper carbine. Heck I 've got several Inlands in those serial ranges, I'll just strip down to barreled rec., call it them A1's, raise the price, and sell for big bucks all day

Is there no difference between anyone calling an Inland a M1A1 and CMP calling an Inland a M1A1?

My records show serial number 146328 was among the 550 M1A1 carbines returned from Greece in 2007. My notes show as it was received, the stock was cracked and missing the wire portion. That's probably why it was sold as a barreled receiver.
