Inland Manufacturing launches US Army 1st Infantry Division 100th Anniversary Commemorative editions of two classic firearms — the Inland M1 Carbine and the 1911A1 pistol.
Inland says the 1st Infantry Division leadership wanted to recognize the 100th anniversary with special firearm and reached out the gun maker for help in crafting two models with historical significance.
The first model chosen was the 1944 version of the M1 Carbine. Inland’s M1 boasts several of the same characteristics as the original Inland carbines. The US made rifles feature a type 2 barrel band, adjustable rear sights, push button safety, round bolt and low wood walnut stock. The stock is hand rubbed with oil and is topped off with an engraving of the 1st Infantry Division’s shoulder patch, accomplishments and recognition of the anniversary. The commemorative M1 ships with a 10-round magazine and is priced at $1,179.
