Pictures of everything I thought might be needed below. I can take others if needed.

With the exception of a few T3 parts, you have a very nice early Inland. Probably would leave it as found.

Please excuse my ignorance in carbine terminology. I’m trying to educate myself. What parts are T3 or not original? I’m guessing T3 means later replacements?

I’m not going to replace a thing. It looks too “correct”. If this was a garand, I’d think it was an example of a not-abused or used too hard and received a few updated parts like rear sight and bayonet lug and not an arsenal rebuild. I just don’t know enough about carbines to say it with confidence. . There’s also a good dose of wishful thinking sprinkled in.

I would either call it a light arsenal rebuild or perhaps it was some collector's well thought out attempt at a restoration. Either way it's a nice looking carbine with honest wear and some pretty valuable early parts.

I tend to think it is partially or mostly original. I only see a dogleg hammer strike on the trigger housing, not two (front one from dogleg and back one from type 3 hammer). May have been a field upgrade to add the type 3 barrel band (with bayonet lug) and the adjustable rear sight. Very nice purchase.

Thanks for everyone’s help. I’m going to put things back together. Since I’m not selling I think it’s OK to ask-What’s a realistic “retail” value on this?

Mike in NC, Are there any incorrect internals? If not, the feel I get is field upgraded rear sight and barrel band. I could do the detective work on a garand, but the carbine internals I needed the help and it was much appreciated.

Thanks to everyone.

Hard to tell without disassembling the entire trigger group and taking pictures of the markings on those and all other parts. From what I can see the trigger group looks good. From the pictures, I can't tell if it is a type 1 hammer with the groove or slot in the top or it is a later type 2 hammer without this slot. You should count the coils in the hammer spring to see if it is the early 22 coil or later 26.5 coil spring.
