Police Dept. letter head buy for $20.00 dollars back in 1965. Inland Div. GM, M1A1, Carbine. I was making $75.00 a week as a Police Officer. If my memory serves me right, (71 yrs. old now), The Chief Of Police signed the Dept. Letter Head and we got them from Fort Gordon, Ga. Only two or three officers wanted them.

Inland and IBM rackers from 2009, $419 for the Inland, don't remember the IBM cost. Also got an HRA SG to go with them.

The Inland was 6 digit and came with a WRA cartouched high wood stock .
The IBM was a 3.6 mil, had a seriously ugly FAT birch stock and MW 3.5, but I had so much fun working on and shooting both of them that I was bitten by the bug and had to get more.

Mine is a IBM racker I purchase from CMP for $495.00. It's a mixmaster with a IBM barrel that swallowed the ME gage, little of the finish left and a M2 stock that looked like someone dug trenches with it. A new stock and a trip to Shuff's and it now looks and shoots great. I won a silver pin in a Garand match with it last year.

An Inland in 1980 for $110. Trigger group was so messed up it go through 3,4,5 shots. A bit distressing the first time out. Trigger group parts were replaced and it worked fine. No, it was not a M2. Sold in 1982 for $110. (Picture me sobbing uncontrollably now)

Angry First Carbine

About 1982 or 1983, I was a cop in Bellevue Washington. An old guy had a gunshop just off of Bel-Red rd. He had a DCM Winchester there. I paid around $600 for it, a bunch of Lake City and Winchester military ammo, an original canvas bag, about 10 GI 15 round mags, and 3 or 4 USGI 30s... I bought it despite the fact it had a green-gray pakerized finish, ugly little flip sight, skinny little barrel band with no bayonet lug, and a stock with an odd I shaped sling cut. To make it worse, it had a dirty old sling with rusty tips that looked like a capital C. I had no idea then that these were desirable features, and later traded it straight across for one that had a bayonet lug and adjustable rear sight... I thought I got the better end of the deal. WAS I STUPID, OR WHAT!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, did I mention that it shot under three inches at 100 yards from a sandbag rest??????

Through the subsequent years, I have had too many carbines to count, since being an FFL and the influx of Blue skies in the late 80s. For most of the 20 years I was a LEO, I carried and qualified with a carbine as a trunk weapon. Now I have a CMP Inland racker (more like service grade tack driver) and a Saginaw barreled receiver (from a stripped CMP carbine) that I built into a mid-war with a repro flip and barrel band. The rest is correct mid-war, mostly Inland, parts and stock.
