Default Carbine value?

I don't need one, but, one showed up at a local shop. Consignment from a customer's collection.
Inland, 6.3 million, 9-44 Inland barrel (GM), flat bolt, "JMO" barrel band, "H" marked rear sight. Nice finish.
On the down side, he took and installed a thin piece of wood fashioned after a Marlin bullseye and put it on the bottom of the pistol grip.
Could not take it apart farther.
Worth $800?
Seems a tad high, but I have been out of carbines for several years.

Good price for shooter. I would probably buy it if all looked in order. You could try to talk him down a bit more, but I doubt he would budge much. Maybe bring up the bullseye? Good luck if you pursue it.

The bullseye is folksy Americana so pretty cool actually. $800 is for a non-import inland in very good shape is somewhat average or below average but I assume there are also tax and transfer fees?

While I'd like this to be true for the value of my collection, monitoring of sales prices on auction and forum sites (not just here) appear to dictate otherwise. I have seen a number of nice service grade condition rifles go for less than that and even bought an excellent one recently for $750.

I have held an 01FFL for over 25 years and buy and sell on the internet. I can pay between $800 and $900 for any decent looking US M1 Carbine not having import markings and expect to turn a $200 profit in not too long a time.
If the piece is specially marked, like the so called Bavarian Carbines, the profit is doubled.
Best,
Steven

Interesting. I've noticed that you buy a lot of rifles, but thought you were a collector. Didn't figure that you are doing it as a business.

Jakeroub,
Whether I am a collector or dealer is a question, as I have done both since leaving the 2nd Armored Division in 1964.

As a hunter, I get bored using the same rifle for more than a few years, so I swap out. For more than 20 years now, I hunt larger game exclusively with a used Browning Stalker in 280 Rem. that I got in a trade. I will likely die owning that rifle.

In terms of my military stuff; I only keep tack drivers. If they do not group well at the range, they go fast.

Otherwise, I sell off to upgrade.

At age 77, I no longer have my clock/antique shop, as I did in Maryland for many years. Now, I only deal out of my home. Dealing helps keep my mind sharp, as I feel it slipping with age.
Best to all,
Steven
