M1 carbine serial number dating Free webcam dating sites with single sexy women
I am interested in seeing more photos of the OP's carbine. The Ordnance dept did have the free barrel program to ensure that there were enough barrels to support all the prime contractors. There were many spring tube carbines found in that serial number range.. For example, the Carbine Club Newsletter #348 from 1 March 2008 reports this: "Most Inland barrels are dated.....
Still, all the references I have indicate that inland made their own barrels and that they were dated. Wayne Did I miss the serial #, or do we just not have it yet? Twelve data sheets reported no date on the barrels.
It appears the Enforcer was introduced by Louis Imperato as part of his take over of Plainfield Machine and before the first carbines with the Iver Johnson name. The highest Plainfield Enforcer serial number observed to date has been PP00524.
Serial numbers observed so far have started with the letters PP followed by five numbers. The Plainfield M-2 Carbines serial numbers are within the M-1 Carbine sequence.
Wayne Craig Riesch in his book states that in regards to carbine barrels "NOTE: The logo types shown above are also found without dates and the Ordnance Department Flaming Bomb symbol except Underwood and Springfield Armory barrels, which were always dated." I have never personally seen an undated Inland barrel but according to Craig Riesch they do exist.
With the flood of fake parts, to include receivers coming out of the Riverbank California area it pays to post good photos of all the pertinent parts to allow the experts to get a good look. Post more detailled shots and let the experten take a whack at it.
Serial numbers ran alphabetically then numerically, when 999 was reached the next serial number started at the next letter and again ran 001-999.
So far, no carbines have been found that start with the letters I or Q.
Handgun calibers were reported as either revolvers, or pistols in calibers 22, 25, 32, 380, 9mm, and 45.
As Plainfield did not manufacture any .32 caliber semi-automatic pistols it is suspected these numbers represent the .30 caliber Enforcer models.
