Smile Carbine Hand Guard ID

Have a nice type 2, shallow groove, two rivit walnut Carbine Hand Guard marked as: I H-B

Any Idea who Hillerich & bradsby Co. made this hand guard for? I can find no reference to this mark in my books. Any help will be appreciated.

V/r, f.bates

"I" usually indicates Inland, so that would be my guess.

guess I take that back. I see LW-B, SCB, BR-B and JL-B (Canfields complete guide) and either OI or HI for Inland.

Thanks. In all my reading, It appears that Hillerich and Bradsbuy Co. only made stocks and hand guards for Inland and Standard Products. The Inland stocks were marked HI and the Std Prods were marked S-HB. The also made hand guards for both Inland and Std Prods and were marked HI and S-HB respectively. The guard I have is marked I H-B. I have never seen a reference to that particular marking on a hand guard. No reference books mention such a mark. I Just wanted to research the knowledge bank out there and see if anyone else has seen a HG marked in that fashion?

I found this old thread while searching. I'm wondering the same thing.



I also see this: http://cmpauction.thecmp.org/detail....-Inland-540022

Anybody know the story on the I-HB?

See Carbine Club Newsletters 67, 323, 324 for a little more info. Apparently, there were both I-HB stocks and handguards made in 1943.
