In arsenal rebuilt condition we have a March, 1943 production Inland made M1A1 Paratrooper Carbine. This carbine was likely an immediate post war upgrade with the rebuild cartouche on the stock and the original ordnance cartouche is still present on the bottom of the pistol grip and the P proof on the back of the stock. This is a factory original M1A1 carbine that was probably upgraded and re-parked, probably in the immediate post war period at a US depot as there is a P proof on the front gripstrap. The bore is mint and the rifle does not appear to have been little used after the rework . This is a great example of a type I paratrooper carbine in post war configuration. These rifles were in US service well into the Vietnam War and this is great example. If you are looking for an example of an M1A1 Carbine for your collection an don’t want to pay a price that is rapidly approaching 10k for an original condition example this is a great choice.
