4 Didgit Inland
In your honest opinion what do you thing this would be worth? Hope I don't have to sell it but wife has medical issues and may need to
Serial # 3954
barrel Inland 6-42, no barrel band shadow, ME<1
Type 1 trigger housing, sear, hammer, safety and mag catch
Inland type 1 slide, front and rear sites (has stake marks)
I cut stock with rebuild and repair. see pics and tell me what you think
The rebuild mark sort of kills it some. If it didn't have a rebuild mark it would be worth a lot more.
A buddy just sold one that was 100% original and a five digit and he got close to $3500 or $3700 out of it.
I really didn't look at your pics that much but with that marking on the stock, I don't know if it would bring half of that or not. With the marking almost everyone automatically thinks restoration, whether it was or wasn't. But that is everyone's first thought and really affects the value. It's crazy what one little stamp does, doesn't it?
I hate to say it, but honestly you probably would get more money from it parted out. It's crazy it's like this, but the parts many times are worth more than the rifle and easier to sell.

Wow,your buddy got 3500.00 out of a Inland? Was it a Paratrooper Carbine? I replied to your post on another sight so will not do it again here but best wishes to your wife..
Rear sight stake marks hurt the value of any restoration also the condition and original finish affect the price a great deal. Pics would help.
Have faith that her health will improve!
Yeah he started it with no reserve on gunbroker at .01. And it went that high. But it was 100% original, and very, very nice.

If the stake marks are at the corners of the dove tail on the ends and are chisel marks then they would be original. Could you take close up pictures of both sides of the rear sight? As long as the stock is an early I cut high wood the rebuild marks may not have too much effect on the value. Is the sling well marked with IA and an ordnance bomb?
I'd like to see a closer look at pic#12. Is that a type 3 barrel band shadow on the stock?

this did start out as a mixmaster that I bought at the local gunshow for $700. It did have a correct bolt, slide and front site. Uncorrect parts were a fake type 2 band, t-2 PI rear site and a Winchester Braverian marked TH, stock was a war time replacement, yes it probably was reparked but it is what it is! I have seen far more IPs than under 4K Inlands. NOW FOR MY RANT
I have been doing carbines for awhile and am in the mind set that there are very few "original" carbines, unless you were at the end of the assembely line and fit it in your lunch bucket, it would be pretty hard to say it is "original" and has never had a bolt, slide or other part replaced. There are people that want nice correct carbines for thier collection and take alot of time finding the right color and wear marks that you would swear it is original. Now that I have had my rant and I am sure alot of people will disagree but it's just my OPINION, everyone has one just like a--h--es. LOL
I DO WANT TO THANK EVERYBODY FOR THIER OPINIONS
