They are all functioning, with the  exception of one M1A1 Carbine and one of my Liberator pistols.

Looks as though the tiny Grand Duchy (pop.550,00) has more liberal gun laws than the United States...and right slap-bang in the middle of Europe!!  :o

Well, I wouldn't go that far....you have to know that I am not allowed to shoot my full auto guns! You can own them, registered on a collectors permit, but you have to keep them at home. I can't, legally, take them to the range! So, we're not as good as Texas or other US states, but we're far better off then most of the European countries.

Two more M1 carbines, an Inland M1A1 and Quality Hardware Manufacturing Company.







The Inland has a very low serial number, so the gun was originally not an M1A1, it seems to have been arsenal rebuilt, it's in a nice enough shape but not all parts are original for a first or second lot. The barrel really puzzles me as the only visible marking I found is an Ordonance flaming bomb, no manufacturers marking! Quite a mystery!!!





The Quality HMC on the other hand seems to be a cool cookie. I spent severl hours, checking it with Bruce Canfield's book and different websites and it seems to be an all correct parts, unaltered, original production one, pretty hard to come by in my neck of the woods!
