    It certainly appears to be as the OP described. The value is the original "paratrooper" stock, $$$$ for collectors. It's a common type 3 action and parts for the most part. The price seems in the ball part considering a all "original" Inland Paratropper is around $5K, even a "correct" paratropper is close to $3K.

    Yes, but without the paperwork, it doesn't matter. I believe the only "true" paratroopers came from CMP with a certificate. I happen to have one the CMP paratrroper carbines. For more info, check out the CMP forum.
