Default Correct Inland Handguard?

I'm new to the carbine world, so be gentle. My Rock-Ola came with a OI Inland stock that is kind of light. Has an ordance wheel on the buttstock. The handguard is dark, 2 rivets, no marks that I've been able to find.

What would be the "correct" handguard? I see an individual selling some but there's different types and I know jack. Inform me, please.

Thanks in advance!

The correct handguard would be an RMC handguard. Also the correct stock would be an RMC stock. High or low wood depending upon SN.

I started this thread after being up all night at work. Guess I should have stated I'm interested in finding the correct handguard for the stock I have. Thanks.

It's my understanding that they did not worry about which handguard they put with each stock during wartime production. So you could use any of the Inland handguards, like HI or OI. I would also say probably say two rivet also. I like to have mine match, but i guess that is up to each person.

I think that the correct handguard would be marked RMC. I don't think they were using Inland handguards at the Rock-ola facility.

lets start over here, the rifle is rockola, its been somewhere along the line been put into a inland stock, he wants to match the stock up with proper handguard, so its going to be a OI or a HI marked handguard for inland so he has a matching stock and handguard,i think thats what hes asking,

Alright I'm onboard now. Got hung up on the "correct" term.

So his "correct to stock" handguard would be an OI. Problem solved?

Correct for his stock could also be an HI handguard.

Not to confuse the situation any more, but wouldn't it be more "correct" to say either OI (S.E. Overton Co.) or HI (Hillerich & Bradsby Co.) would be "correct for his carbine" while matching an OI handguard to his OI stock would be "correct for his stock" since they were made by the same company? Not that it made Inland any difference which combination they used when manufacturing these wonderful carbines. Also, were stocks & handguards shipped together as a set or just in big crates of separate components? I kinda assume the latter, but you know what happens when you assume things.

I'm asking more to learn than to debate.

Hope we didn't scare him away from the carbine forum.
