Default Early Inland, what's the big deal?

I've noticed that the very early Inland's garner some attention by some on this forum. I was wondering what exactly makes them more desirable. Is it because they were the first to produce any carbines in 1942? I have one 118XXX which makes it a very early carbine but the barrel has been replaced so I really don't know when it was made. I assume 1942 sometime.

I have also wondered about the rarity of my five digit Inland.

It sports a 10/42 dated Inland Barrel.

That helps. Looks like mine was a 43 gun.

Anytime you are looking at an early production item...it will garner a little more attention. Those guns would have a better chance of being issued and used extensively. They might exhibit early parts, or barrel date. I think most people would look at a 1942 barrel date and think it was pretty cool to have a first year of WW2 item. I have an early Underwood mixmaster from the CMP. And it's probably only worth mixmaster pricing...but I REALLY like the 11-42 on the barrel. Condition is always the main criteria for valuation. An early gun will attract attention but if it will bring a price premium is not assured. IMO

And very late carbines gather attention also, like the 7.2 Winchesters
