I think that the first thing this guy should do is decide what he wants. A shooter a rebuild or an original. Next learn how to look for bad things like a welded receiver. Then spend your energy looking for what you want.
An Inland is just as good as any carbine made, they just made more of them. A NPM was Ruth's choice as the best. A Rockola would be a score, an SP would be a score, a Winchester would be a score although they are the same, the name is gold.


On the west coast, you can attend a major gun show and see 0 carbines for sale. If you do it will be $1000 min.


Reasons for owning one? They are a light handy little rifle that has a lot of uses. Home defense, camping gun for cats,black bears and people. It is an absolute blast to shoot. I would not consider a commercial made carbine, even the "New" Inlands.

Dave HH... If I could add this,

Also look over the Receivers Left Locking Shoulder.
This winter I've ran across a few Receiver only, Barreled Receiver and Mixer Carbines on Auction sites and at semi local shows that have 'Beyond Repair' Damage to this area.

If buying online, Be sure to ask for pictures of the (Both) Locking shoulders.... Especially the Left.

Did you win this? It's a good representative of what is out there.
