The problem with Carbines is the same as with Garands, they've all been rebuilt three, maybe four times both here and abroad. Mine, a 498xxx Inland only has one, a SA crossed cannon stamp on the Buttstock and a fat-bellied M2 stock. Here's a pic of it with it's Big-Brothers.

M58 pretty much covered it. Mine, although going through SA where they added the adj.rear sight, flip safety and Bayonet lug, is pretty much original, even has the flat bolt and correct barrel. The M2 stock, even though it's an M1 is Inland.

The only change I made was to install a M2 mag.release. This is a must if you want to ever use 30 round magazines. It has a tab that hold the mag at the right angle for feeding.
