I brought a friend to a gun show today to buy a M1 carbine. He is a shooter, not a collector. We bought him a Plainfield. It was in real nice shape, good bore, nice wood. He paid $430.00 out the door. I don't know much about these. I know we bought a commercial gun not a GI. How did we do?

Too Much! Local FFL has one on the rack for 275.00. You should have been able to pick up a GI for that price.

I wouldn't have paid that much.

But I also don't believe USGI's are that cheap anymore. Last gun show I went to in Denver $600+ was the cheapest.

ss109, thats what I saw today. No GI's less that $625, and these were imports. The only ones cheaper (mid $300's) were the Universals, which I was told to stay away from.
