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.
