Did a little window shopping today, and found a decent looking IMI M1 Carbine for under $400. Anyone familiar with the IMI? Are they a decent variant?

Thanks!

They've been known to have some issues.

My advise would be to pass, save your money and get a USGI carbine. You almost never have any kind of problem with a decent US one.

IAI M1 carbines are junk, save your pennies and get a real GI carbine ...

To clarify what tangent mentioned: they are made by "IAI", NOT "IMI", the Isreali arms company...we can only wish IMI made it!

... and Israeli Arms has nothing to do with Israel.

Thanks for the notes, guys. Sorry about the mix-up on the brand. Must have glossed over "IAI" assuming it was "IMI", or it could have been a misprint.

Will continue to look...
