I know very little about M1/M2 conversions. I'm very interested in this Inland 1944 production. Other than the price being steep, is this a good bet conversion? I appreciate any information you could provide me on this.

 

Thanks,

 

Jay

Only real M2 's were made by Winchester and Inland . All were late war guns. Any other manufacture even US GI are all conversion.
Price seems high for a conversion - Earls gun shop. Original guns serial number range are listed in several good carbine books. Maybe
I'm a little off on prices but conversions like this were going for $7000 maybe $8000. Original Win & Inland were going for $12000 to $
15000. Corrections would be appreciated if my estimates are off.

Is that a registered receiver? I suggest that you first determine if you want a registered receiver or a parts kit.

I like the registered parts kits. Several good discussions in the threads in this forum, but I cannot find the recent ones right off, and the thread titles are not always obvious.

 

Here is an older one to get you started.

You were pretty much on target

 

I would say depending on condition a converted registered receiver M2 would sell between 9 to 10k.   Kits for a bit more, but originals of course will command the highest price.  Saw one for 15k a few months ago but not sure if it sold at that price.

Ruben is the owner of Dealer NFA and he sells good quality machine guns which usually have been test fired and gone through by his smith.  You can also negotiate price with him and/or terms of payments.  I just purchased a grease gun from him and absolutely a great guy to work with in my opinion.

It's a receiver conversion.  Gun looks pretty nice.  One of my M16's is an Earl's Gun Shop conversion.  If you have any specific questions about this weapon, I will be there in person in a couple of weeks, and could take a look.

Not WWII GI, aftermarket commercial carbine. As I recall they did make some full-auto factory carbines 1970-80 era
