I wanted to buy a real folding stock paratrooper Carbine but the $2500+ price was a bit too much. So I did the cheapskate solution. I bought a reproduction paratrooper stock for $175. I put a 5.3 million serial number Inland Carbine in the stock. Soooooo...............What do you think ???

An airborne fella from D-day would not know the difference.

...but he might be curious about the new rear sight, safety, and bayonet lug!

The true original Paratroopers are worth 2500+. Most you see are not original. There are tens of thousands of late production folding stocks. These can be identified by the leather, rivets and casting marks. You can send the folders out to have the correct leather and rivets installed but the casting marks on the butt plate are hard to fake.
