Default Early Inland Carbine with Pics

I am going to be looking at an early Inland Carbine which is supposed to be correct except for a late slide. I am new to Carbines. I just bought the Duff/Ruth book for reference. I understand how to read the Garand period correct spec sheets published by Duff. Is there something similar for the early Inland carbine so that I know what is correct?

^ I don't have a serial number. Not sure yet. Is there a set of spec sheets for an Inland carbine like there is for Garands?

I'm not sure what you mean by "spec sheet", but in the back of U.S. M1 Carbines, Wartime Production (Craig Riesch, 6th ed.)there is a "survey" table that lists all the parts, and has spaces to mark down the manufacturer and type of the parts on your rifle, and another set of columns to do the same for what the parts "should be".

Throughout the book there are tables organized by part, manufacturer, and serial number, giving part variations and markings.

If you go to amazon.con, you can see the survey table on pages 206-207 of the book (http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/1882...pt#reader-link).

The "what the parts should be" is what I need.

The table for that are in the Riesch book. I would recommend that you borrow or buy the book. It can also be viewed at Amazon.com (sign in to see more of it, including most of the tables), but for other than a one time use, that wouldn't really be right (personal opinion only).

I will guess it is a 1942 model, barrel date would help. Carbine Club has a newsletter that covers early Inlands. I have it on order now.
Maybe someone can provide NL#.

Normally each specific part will have a table, with serial #s.
Changes were made rapidly early on, springs,pins, stocks, bolts, triggers.

Club newsletter for early Inland block is #346 - a good issue, packed full of data with all the nuances.
