Picked up a few nice items at the Wellington Gun auction today

Book "War Baby Comes Home" The U.S. Caliber .30 Carbine Volume II
2 x 15 round mags both marked IS (International Silver)
Barrel band, with bayonet lug Marked KI (Inland Division Of General Motors)
Trigger Housing marked BE-B
Department Of The Army technical manual - Cal .30 Carbines M1, M1A1, M2, and M3
Bayonet U.S. M4 for M1 Carbine

Very happy with these - however will most likely sell the trigger housing if anyone needs one

Very nice haul, were there any other Carbine bits in the auction?

Were the prices over the top for the whole auction, or reasonable?

Hello Billyvan

There were a few other bits - some other mags $100 for 2 x 30 round (unmarked), a gas piston wrench as part of a mixed lot.
Barrel band and cocking handle (carnt remember price on that)
There was a fairly average Inland M1 Carbine that didnt sell - the reserve was $1000 or more
I missed out on the book "War Baby" The U.S. .30 Carbine. I went to $110 for it and it sold for $120 (was later told it was very cheap at that price)
Was another bayonet - think it went for about $170?

That was about it as it was a small auction of only 528 lots

Sorry Billyvan - didnt really answer the second part of your question

Prices were pretty ok - there were a few bargains, but not so many buyers there probably helped that.
Many items were withdrawn and reserves were a bit high on many lots.
Some of the better lots still got to quite high prices

Overall not a bad day out.

Good score, I'd be interested in the trigger housing one day, Mike.
