    I decided to head down the the CMP (Anniston, AL) to pick up an M1 Carbine. Sorry l4zy forgot to message you :(I got there at 8:30 and it was pretty packed. TONS of Service and Field Grade Inland Carbines. A dozen or so IBM, Saginaw, Underwood and Quality Hardware Carbine. Not a single Service Grade Garand anywhere as the CMP has those reserved for mail orders.

    The Special Grade Garand's are fucking beautiful, but $995? No thanks. I browsed the racks and found several nice Carbine's but decided on this Saginaw because the barrel rated less than 1 on the ME and the stock has a nice color/grain. Repro sling and oiler are ordered. Now the hard part.............finding fucking carbine ammo.

    Enjoy

    Nice!!! I pick up my M1 carbine (in stupid california 10 day lockup) on monday. I bought the same Aguila ammo that CMP sells at Natchez for only slightly more. They are out of Aguila now but have Sellier and Bellot for $19.99/box (50 rounds). That's about 8 or 9 cents per round more than CMP price and it's in stock.

    I'll post pics of my Underwood carbine when I pick it up on monday

    Just got back from the range, holy fuck is this thing a shooter. Indoor range is limited to 50 yards, but all rounds were well within the diameter of a quarter.

    I like the carbines, but wtf they have gotten expensive lately. Back in 1990 I bought one for $70, cleaned it up, and resold it to a guy who offered me $200.

    And now I see used ones for $800 to more than $1000. :eek3:

    review of sling and oiler? Where'd you get it? links? My carbine is ready to pick up, so I'd like to get a sling and oiler as well. Oh what about the pouch?

    For those of you that are on the fence, M1 Carbines are starting to dry up as well.

    CMP is now sold out of Inland Service Grade Carbines

    I've thought about getting one for a long time, but I've never been in AL when I have extra money.
