    So at the end of April, CMP will start selling Carbines that they recently got as returns (from italy i think).

    Anyway, reading the CMP forum, and other forums, a lot of people want these. And I'm not trolling, but I don't understand why someone would want one? I mean, they didn't get the fame the M1 Garand has, and they shoot a much smaller round.

    The only reason I can think of getting one, is for my gf. Because she likes my garand, but she complains about the weight of it. And the Carbine is lighter. other then that, I don't see whats so great about them.

    Good M1 Carbines arent really cheap for what they are. Now that CMP will be releasing some, people can buy them at a lower cost.

    They're fun to plink with etc.

    CMP is a govt program that sells military surplus rifles, to an extent, to marksmanship programs and to civilians for use in shooting competitions and firearms enjoymt etc. Because they work with the govt abt arent looking for market price profits like most schmos. The guns are sold at really affordable prices etc.

    There are a few requirement to purchase these guns, but nothing to difficult and is worth it.
