Inland Manufacturing has begun making a .30-caliber Scout Carbine with a black-anodized-aluminum upper handguard and Picatinny rail, so that the shooter can mount long-eye-relief scopes on the rifle. MSRP: $1,239.
Inland’s Picatinny rail also makes it possible to mount red dots, lasers, lights and other accessories. The Inland Scout Carbine also has military-type iron sights. The rail/handguard is attached to the barrel.
The Scout Carbine is chambered in .30 Carbine and is fitted with a military-style conical flash hider. The barrel thread is 1/2×28, so the flash hider may be removed to fit a suppressor or other muzzle treatment.
The American walnut stock is sprayed with a proprietary industrial textured polymer that gives it a tough black finish.
Inland’s Scout Carbine will accommodate 10-, 20-, and 30-round military magazines, and it is sold with one 15-round magazine in all states except California, where it is sold with one 10-round magazine.
The rifle weighs 5.5 pounds (without bases, rings, and scope) and has an 18-inch barrel (including flash hider). Overall length is 35.75 inches.
Current Inland carbines are serialized starting at 9,000,000 and have a definitive barrel marking to ensure they’re not confused with original U.S. military carbines built during W.W. II.
