Default Carbine cheek pad

I was at a gun show and saw a carbine with a cheek pad on it. Looked legit but to me it looked more like a riser. Also had USGI rail and weaver scope. So my question is did they ever make a cheek pad/riser for a carbine? Thx Will

Maybe he has seen an M1D Garand Sniper leather cheek riser that was installed on a carbine.

what you saw was a reproduction of the T3 carbine called the T30, that is made by INLAND-MFG, this is not the INLAND of WW2, but a company that took the name INLAND for their company name

the check riser could have come as a accessory, like the reproduction scope, or the seller just put on a GARAND cheek riser or something similar to induce a sale

anyhow, here is the carbine you saw.

I don't think he saw a T30. I think he saw this. A real Inland Div. of General Motors carbine.
The last one I saw sell was near $3K on Scott Duff's site.

Look closely, that bar goes in the dovetail to a barrel mount that goes through the handguard.
The mount is designed for an infrared scope to be mounted on any make USGI carbine.
these showed up for Korean era. Also, the Redfield Jr. rings to mount a scope to this bar do not fit correctly and require fitting.

The M1E7 was a scoped carbine that was not adopted. The mount concept was the predecessor to what became the T3 carbine.

In 1944 and 1945 there was the T3. Inland and Winchester made the T3 carbine designed around an infrared scope.

Inland had a bar brazed to un unmachined dovetail and front ring.
Similar to the New Inland MFG, but their bar slides in the dovetail. Few other differences as well

Winchesters receiver has machined higher mounts integral to the receiver, no bridge bar


If anyone has a new Inland T30 I would really like to see some good pictures of the mounting bar
