What ever happened to all the USGI C&R stuff that was supposed to hit the shores when the ATF announced the barrel ban decision?

Did I miss something?

there was a rumor going around here and on other forums about donated GI weapons (carbines, 1911's, etc.) coming back home.

I didn't think it was a rumor.. I thought it was pretty well spelled out that the importers could bring them back home, but can't find a copy of the letter now.

I remember the letter in question. First the importers have to find a cache of firearms that is for sale, in decent shape, at a decent price, in a country that isn't on our state department sh** list. This is a rather tall order. A lot of the U.S. lend-lease arms have simply been used up or destroyed. Somebody might find a CONEX container of well preserved M1 Carbines in a dark corner of a foreign warehouse years from now, but I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for this to happen.

probably.. I just remember the talks of importers already having surplus stuff on it's way back. Would be here in time for Christmas.

I haven't heard a peep since then...

Wasn't there something about a shipload of rifles held up in a Turkish or Italian port because they were milurps?

Not holding my breath on this but hot and heavy debate over at CSP/Jousters about Korean M1 Garands and M1 Carbines up for bid by the Korean .gov


People over at Jousters are at each others throats about this

Wow. That is a lot of Korean Garands and Carbines. It seems academic to me that we'll get them. We're one of a handful of countries left where civilians can still own guns like that and I imagine we're the only country left where the market can absorb that many firearms. The question is when, through whom, and for what price.

I never get over how impossibly SHITTY that forum is to read. Ugh, no wonder they're all bent out of shape, that site is a mess.
