I have a NIB Govt. Carbine purchased back in 1994.
Just for reference, It's a Blue Label box with ser. # GC0099**. I paid $1100.00 for early in 1994.
I've was tempted to fire it, but after the Sept 1994 legislation I figured it may increase in value. It certainly has and has been one of the best investments I've ever made, other than Wal-Mart stock!
