I saw an IBM made M1 carbine today in a gun shop I found. The person who sold it to them had sanded the stock down until all cartouches were gone, and then refinished it. It was not a re-import. As a result, they had $550 on it. Is this good, bad, or indifferent?

What should I look for, I don't know anything about the carbines.

depends on what you want it for a shooter or a collectible.

Should have said, I'm looking for a shooter. I didn't get a chance to grab the serial # or bore light it, was in sort of a hurry.
