I have been in the market for a M1 Carbine in USGI Mint condition or other for quite awhile.

I notice that at one time (evidently) SA made receivers for the M1 Carbine (commercial), but it is Mil-Spec and remaining part of rifle is put together with WWII USGI parts. Not like the old "Universal", etc.

Anybody own one? I still see new SA receivers for sale in Shotgun News and elsewhere.

I bought a NIB IAI M1 Carbine and it is veeeeery sweet.

I built one and posted about it a month or two ago.
Here's the original post:

It has been to the range at least a dozen times and has fired/functioned perfectly.
I am very happy with it and will soon be building the second receiver I got at that time into a complete gun.

Age must be getting to me. I actually responded with a couple of posts yo your post. I see some advertisements for the receivers selling for only $65,00 each.

I called on those $65.00 receivers in the Springfield Inc. ads. The ads are a teaser just to let people know that the receivers are available through distributors and not nearly at that price. Most are around $125.00 to $150.00.
