I have one of your 'wants'; an all-matching Inland M1 carbine. Even better than the all-matching part is that I picked it up about 5 years ago for $200 from a friend of my dad who had it propped in the corner of his garage for about a decade and just wanted to get rid of it.

Oh yeah, I scored a Springfield
M1903 in the same grab. Same price. :) Unfortunately he was fresh out of Garands or I definitely would have made it a 3-fer.

Hate to gloat, but I will! I've got 3 of the 4 and I too am anxiously waiting on the STG.

My 1911 is an unfired(!) Remington that was owned by a staff oficer of Mc Arthur in WWII. I got it from his (now deceased) widow some years back. The only wear is some light pitting on the top of the slide and on the bbl hood.

The it came with the original holster and pistol belt. Both are rough.

Best part is the original mag loaded since WWII and never un-loaded! On the head stamp you can just see it's dated '44.

I'm detecting a theme. ;)

can't argue with any of your choices. My Carbine isn't 'original and correct', but still shoots very nicely. Stuck a Ultimak rail and red-dot sight on it; works very well indeed.
