Well, you answered my questions pretty well. I recently picked this stock up as there doesn't seem to be a surfeit of original US Carbine wood around anymore. I thought it would be good to have an original spare stock as there seem to be carbines in other wise nice shape for sale in after-market stocks.
So, in other words, this stock would not be correct for an "as manufactured" Inland M1, but would it be "correct" on a re-build when the carbine was up-graded to be fitted with the Type 3 band, adjustable rear sight, etc ?
This one is genuine. (condition is not pristine, but it's all there, and appears all right)
It's missing the front band spring and the buttplate and butt screw. Any good sources for original parts?
