I got one of the last rackers from CMP earlier in the year. Here is a thirty shot group, from a 6.7 Inland, bbl. 01-45. MW is just under 2, bbl. has some light pitting. The magazine is a well worn SEY 30 round, which I think is original USGI. Distance was 50 yd., and I shot from a bench. No malfunctions whatsoever. Weather was warm, with little wind. The last 5 rounds are the flyers on the left. Not sure if something loosened up, more likely I pulled them. I can live with this rifle. Thanks for looking,

Charlie

My NPM does the same thing at 50 yards. I really believe that the carbine will do what it was designed to do and that was replace the pistol. Now at 100 yards mine really opens up.

As the need for carbines began winding down towards the end of WWII, the government canceled carbine contracts from all but two makers. They HAD to continue accepting Winchesters as Winchester had come up with the carbine, however, they kept Inland making carbines because they made the best carbine overall.

Once I saw the size of the group, I got a bit nervous, and that's when the group opened up. Next time out, I'll shoot regular slow fire, and then go to 100 yd. to see what happens there.. It doesn't seem to have a problem w/ a pitted barrel. BTW, I was shooting the LC 72 CMP was selling a couple months ago.
Thanks for looking, and for the comments!
