    Bought this in the late 80s
    It’s in decent shape.
    I would rate it 85% but I rate very harshly as I like people to be happy
    The prices are all over the place. Any idea what’s the going price on these??
    I will have to look and see if it’s all matching.

    In order to tell you its value we would need more info IMHO. The reason prices are all over the place is that some M1 carbines are mix masters. They have been assembled from parts or rebuilt by the US Army at some point using available parts just like Garands and the CMP 1911s. The closer to factory original the more they demand.
    • Does it have an secondary import mark?
    • What does the barrel guage?
    • Pics of the stock and who made the stock?
    • Break the gun down and post pics of every part to determine who made each part and the year it was made.
    From there people who know carbines can give you an accurate value.

    Will get it out of the safe when I get home and get more info.
    Don’t have a gauge for the bore but have always used a 308 bullet to check.

    Inland barrel dated 3/45
    I didn’t remove the action from the stock.
    I see no markings on the bolt or charging handle
    Mag release has a underlined M
    Safety has a N
    Has a faint importers mark on the underside of the barrel. (Arlington Ordnance
    Arlington, VA)

    Has a 2 mag, mag pouch on the buttstock containing 2 blues mags with SS marked on them

    Didn’t do the bullet test on the bore but it doesn’t look worn and was a decent shooter back in the 90s which is the last time I shot it

    Don't be surprised if you don't sell it in that range. Its an import so the price is at least $200 less then a non import. Try $900 to $1000 and if still no buyers then drop another hundred off the price.
