Default Inland M1 and M2 with handstamped number

I remember a post regarding hand stamped late war production Inland carbines with the 1 or 2 handstamped on the receiver ring. Friend has a transferable NFA M2 that he says is 'Handstamped".

I know that there are examples of "2" overstamps over the "1" and have seen M-1/2 stamps that were supposedly done by an armory.

Know that this is not the normal thread for our forum so a private message is OK.

jeeperbob et. al.

Need to verify that handstamped M 1 and M 2 receivers did exist and get information to the thread on the old forum about them.

Thank you Old Doug

Correct.. During production changeover Inland handstamped a 1 or 2 and in some cases an overstamp was made. Anything marked M2 is a receiver for an automatic weapon.
