You should count the coils in the hammer spring to see if it is the early 22 coil or later 26.5 coil spring.

Iím reading on a carbine site that the longer spring and new trigger were mandatory replacements during post war ordnance overhauls. This leads me to believe this one didnít go through an overhaul.

For me, I have no problem with stocks that were worked on by arsenals. Sanding, highwood cut downs, brass pins are part of its government service life.

That stock on the other hand looks like it was cleaned up a few years ago.
True Dat 100%. But more recently.

I would have liked to have seen that stock before the bumps, knicks, dents, corners, and half the Inland (O) and P were sanded away.

There is just a hint of original color up around the band.

Nothing left a rebuild that smooth. Or that color.

Not every carbine that went through rebuild was totally rebuilt. Sometimes, like in your case potentially, only certain parts were changed. Again, you have a neat, desirable Inland, congrats!
