thanks, lt!

I dimly recalled there being another there, so I was second guessing myself. I think you're right, Interarms might have been from Arlington too, but I suspect this was a Blue Sky import- I saw a rather dearly priced M1 carbine today, in quite nice shape, a NPM with a rockola barrel, and part of an 'Arlington VA" stamp on the barrel. I think I'll pass on it. My Pop got an M1 carbine recently and I have a new-found appreciation for them, but this would need to be the last one on earth before I'd fork over the kind of dough being asked for an import marked carbine

Interarms (previously Interarmco) was in Alexandria, VA, not Arlington.

#10 Prince Street, if I recall correctly.
