M1 Carbine Question

warningshot,
Inland production shows a 6,300,xxx serial to be mfg from Aug 44 - Nov 44 (6219689 - 6449687)

Flat bottom stock, not an M2 fat bottom stock. Probably re-arsenaled post war for the bayo lug (more than likely)

As to late production, sorta but more middle late than late late. Inland made 3 more batches with the last being Aug 45... but certainly yours was made within the last year of production.

Shoot it yet?

Probably the cheapest price you'll find in a big box store. I always ask them if they have others back in the stock room to choose from as well (never hurts to ask).

War Babies are a hoot to own and shoot. I will say that. Good for HD too f need be (I suppose, never having used mine for said purposes)
