They are still out there. I found an SG tucked-away in a garage storeroom a couple of weeks ago. Had not been fired in years. Can't prove one is a bring-back without prominence, but we can always believe that it is.

That is one fine looking Inland carbine. Those late production Inlands are some of the nicest carbines you'll find.

Thanks for the comments, it is my third original as found carbine in the last two years with no sign of a restoration.... Thanks again, Mike

A nice authentic looking carbine right right down to the sling. It's a shame that so many of the highest selling carbines out there are both pretty and also pretty faked one way or another while carbines like this one often get little bidding respect. To each their own I guess.

These late carbines are out and about. Collectors have flip sight and type 1 band disease, a common affliction that makes them ignore anything that doesn't have the flip/band combo. A poorly done restoration will get them on the excitement plan faster than a type 2 band. This in spite of the fact that a type 2 band is more valuable. Carbines with all of the latest features, less miles on the gun and a better sight system appeal to me. This Inland should be run through Chris Albright's checklist from CC issue 361, it covers everything.
