Our Assessment: From www.inland-mfg.com/Inland-Carbines/M1-1944.html :
In 1941, with the US being pulled into one of the greatest conflicts in world history, a division of General Motors was tasked to support the war effort.
The result was firearm history with Inland Manufacturing becoming one of the largest gun manufacturers in the US, producing nearly 3 million firearms in less than 5 years.
The most notable of Inland’s firearm production was the .30 Caliber M1 carbine and the folding stock variant, the M1A1 Paratrooper model.
Dayton, Ohio was home for the original Inland company, and is now the home of the new Inland Manufacturing located just two miles from the original facility. Today’s Inland Manufacturing is now producing a new line of .30 caliber M1 carbines…The M1 1944 carbines feature many of the same characteristics of the original Inland Carbines and are manufactured in the USA!
