Default Early Inland Trigger Housing

I recently bought a Inland M1 carbine serial #89xxx barrel dated 11-42.
I have found in stripping that the trigger housing is different than other M1 carbines I have seen. It has a vertical pin and spring just ahead of the hammer, not sure what this does (except makes assembly and dis-assembly more difficult). Is this the early type 1 sear spring? Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

Are you selling the housing ? If not you might want to post this in the "Ask Each Other " section of the Forum.....

Post a picture. It sounds like you've got some M2 parts installed.

Thanks All for replying. I found a diagram on page 183 of Bruce Canfield's book on the M1 Garand and the M1 carbine. It does look like I have a M2 trigger housing the disconnector, diconnector spring, and disconnector plunger are all present. It never occurred to me that someone had used a M2 trigger housing on a M1 rifle. I bought this rifle because it was in such good shape and the muzzle measured less than 1. Now I don't know what I have. Everything seems to function OK, but I wonder if I should change out the trigger housing.
Thanks Again,
TimR

There's nothing wrong with what you have, but if you are looking to replace by "normal" parts, those upgraded parts you have are fetching a pretty penny on ebay. The disconnector alone if USGI will bring you almost $200 (!), hammers over $50 (!), and M2 housings, even if not original, are well north of $100!

Just sayin'
