Your barrel has been replaced. The COLT .45 AUTO marking on top of the chamber is post WWII.

1915 Government Model production was from approximately C16000 to C26000. Nothing set in stone on the...

The eagle head/number is the acceptance mark of the U.S. military. Each inspector was issued a different number to identify him. The flaming bomb over U.S. is the logo indicating U.S. property.

The Walther PPK was not at question. It was the very worn Mauser with crude engraving that the discussion centered on.

About $14,750 too high. Looks like someone's truck gun before it was crudely engraved. Pistol is worn, but engraving is not. Not the quality that Herman Goring would have worn.

By the time you put a patch over the end of the jag it will be considerably larger in diameter.

The jag on the end appears to be larger in diameter than the 1/2" rod, so wouldn't fit in a .50 caliber bore.

Probably a shotgun cleaning rod. The 1/2" diameter is too large for any military rifle made in the last 150 years.

Looks more like a "barracks bag" cut in the stock. Germans weren't big on personalizing their weapons, so name may be GI that brought it back.

I wouldn't want a $1000 in it considering the stock.

Unfortunately yes. Hope you didn't put a lot in it. Shows some rounded and dished edges due to buffing wheel polish.

The only blued (DuLite) Inland M1 Carbines I have seen were under serial number 100,000. In 1944 Inland changed to the adjustable rear sight and Type II barrel band. The wood sounds like refinished...
