Default New to me inland (3 mil)

Here's a Inland I just picked up. Your expertise is appreciated.

3,065,531

Everything other than the stamped rear sight appears to be inland, but I have not completely torn down the trigger housing. Nice patina, been there done that look. Patina and wear matches well, I don't think this carbine has been messed with.

That being said, the obvious thing out of place here is the rear sight. It seems strange considering that nothing is out of place. For what it's worth, Riesh says (pg.27) "When a rear sight needed to be replaced in the field during the war, the latest configuration may have been used. Some "bring back" carbines observed had all of their original parts with the exception of the later, adjustable rear sight, which was staked to the receiver."

Could that be the case for this carbine?

Either way, I'm quite happy with it!

Info and photos below.

Inland receiver
Inland trigger housing, vertical Inland stamp
Inland hammer marked HI
Unmarked recoil plate
Flat bolt - no Inland markings, but appears to have "3"? stamped on the lug
Inland front sight marked N
Stamped adjustable rear sight. marked IRCO
Inland slide marked PI
Inland Barrel 12-43
Unmarked Type 1 barrel band and swivel
Inland high wood stock marked IO with cross cannons and P proof. No re-arsenal markings.
Inland handguard marked IO

It does appear a flip rear sight was on the receiver.

It doesn't appear that a type 2 or 3 barrel band was ever on it, but it appears that (based on color and wear) the push button safety was added afterwards. The hammer is the latter type too. There bolt is an Inland. Odds are pretty good the firing pin and extractor are Inland too. Same with the trigger and sear. Those are easy parts to find compared to the other manufacturers.

So, you and Riesch have never heard of MWO ORD B28 W3?

Invest $10 in CCNL #382 and then reduce the size of your pics.

I can't speak for Riesch but I have not, hence why I ask. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, I'll pickup a copy.

Why answer in code to a legitimate question?
Matt, looks like you did well on your carbine search.

Try to stick to the substance. I don't owe you an explanation on how I present reliable info.


If you had ever heard of the MWO, maybe you could have told the OP instead of playing editor.

Straight hammer is correct for the serial number range

Some push safeties were blued. Not typical for Inland but it might have been from another manufacturer to fill a need if Inland was running short.

Thanks for all the replies! I wont be swapping / correcting anything on the carbine. I've ordered the CCNL and can't wait to dig into it. I also need to do a full teardown of the trigger group in the next few weeks.
