I saw a local auction has a M1 carbine on the block. Can any one tell from the pic if this is GI or a clone? Is there a easy way for me to look at it and tell?

Thanks

I listed the rarest at the top to the most common at the bottom.

$450 on up for a GI mismatched parts gun, $650-700 on up for an original carbine.

I need to move where you live to see prices like that. In my wanderings searching for Carbines, those prices might be seen 1 in 100 carbines. Most non import mixmasters I see for over $500 and an origional non mixmaster non import will be most likely over $1000. At least it will be worth that. There are deals out there.

From the SN that should have an Underwood Reciever on it.
