That is very nice, Naughtymonkey! Congratulations! You have one of 228K made - the least amount manufactured!

Now, we know where, at least, two are. :-)

hahah You have one? Thats not totally true, there are 239 Carbines marked "Commercial controls" made by National Postal Meter, so those are the least manufactured but I doubt you'll ever see one of them. lol.

Also there are 50,000 marked Irwin Pederson.

According to these only 162,000 Rock-Ola were made. lol.

Well all I can say is who knows which is right. We never know for sure unless we see a Military document that says haha.

But thanks and Yes they do, I think I'm going to shoot it a couple times and make sure it works then it goes back in the safe, I think its my safe queen hahaha. :)

The National Postal Meter stock (the fat 70 Italian) is fatter, is that why its called fat?

F.A.T. is the internal abbreviation for the Italian army. I forget it's exact translation but it has nothing to do with a fat stock. LOL.

Nice RockOla. I've got one with minor upgrades that were done at Underwood prior to Korea. My Inland is the one within my collection still in original condition.

I was making a joke about the Fat Stock, I think its an M2 stock?

Thats cool. I want an Inland as well but I think it will be one of the last I get because there most common. Start with the rarest I guess.

Oh man, that is very nice indeed. Just look at the sucker, basking in it's high wood/dog leg rear sight goodness. MMM MMM MMM. I have a CMP Rock-Ola too but it is your usuall mix-master, late model version, but still a Rock-Ola. I am sure that baby cost you a pretty penny. Thanks for sharing and congrats.

I figured you guys that are Carbine fanatics (like me) would appreciate it. I want one of each one day. I know I probably will never get an Irwin Pederson one. (lol.) But the others. One day, 9 Carbines in all. Good lord!
