    Need help identifying M1 Carbine

    First off thanks in advance. Iím trying to figure out if this is an original M1 Carbine or a replica. I did a lot of googling and watching YouTube but Iím still unsure. The serial # is 680xxxx, the stamp on the bottom of the front of the barrel says 45. I read there are a lot of 1945 replicas. Here are some pics thanks for any input

    The manufacturer's name is stamped on the reciever under the rear sight.
    Looks like a USGI from what I see. Go to USCarbineCal30.com lots of good info there and the CMP forum.

    I believe it to be real. Looks like a nice carbine. From what I can see it has a type II barrel band and type II rear sight. Stock is for Underwood. You buying or selling?
    No matter if you think you can or think you can't, you are probably right !!

    Yep, it's a real Inland Carbine. But check the markings on the breach ring (pull the operating rod back). Make sure if says "cal .30 M1". If it says M2, or the 1 is over stamped with a 2, run far away! That little 2 makes it a machine gun in the eyes of the Feds.
