Picked this up at the local auction last night. First one I have bought, don't think $10 was to much.

I've seen them selling in the $40-60 range in slightly worse condition, so you did good.

That case looks awfully long for a Carbine case.Has it been added onto?There was no issue Garand case during WW2 that I have found listed anyplace in the SNLs.

All the one's I've seen in person were modified from carbine cases by extending the non-zippered end. I don't have any idea who did the extension.
