Was looking one over at a LGS. Looked OK for a shooter. Any idea of quality and value?

My first M1 carbine was purchased from Alpine sales from the add in the American Rifleman.

Bought it around 1960. My carbine had a GI receiver, not a new made Nat' Ord. receiver.

As I recall it was a 200K Inland receiver, a brand new Marlin barrel, and an M2 trigger housing and slide, a ratty looking stock.

The receiver was heavily pitted, sand blasted and parked. When fired ,the barrel would come loose and turn.

Traded it off in 1965.

While I got off to a bad start with carbines, I more than made up for it over the years.

This one was in very good condition, no pitting and had a blued finish. I'm still on the fence about it.

Hold out for a GI carbine, nothing collectable just an Inland Frankengun.  They may cost a little more but in the long run they're worth it
