M1 Carbine Prices

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

The hang tag prices that I have seen recently on M1 Carbines have been amazing. The CMP gets some M1 Carbines in on occasion at reasonable prices and tends to sell out of them almost immediately. A local gun auction sold a well used M1 Carbine for $1,000.00. I was in a gun shop this week and they had two M1 Carbines. One was a Standard Products with most of the metal finish missing and was $525.00. Right next to it was a mint Inland carbine with original bayonet, G.I. pouch and magazines for the same price. I put it on layaway. I hate it when that happens. Take care...

Wow, that's crazy. I just checked Gunbroker and they're going for a lot more than I would have believed. Glad I already own one because I wouldn't pay that much for one, if I didn't. I mean, they're cool n' everything, but jeez...

and the ammo for 'em! That's a whole 'nother rant that I've probably touched on a time or two.

I'm curious: How did the shop certify that the bayonet was "original"?

Last year I replace my 1943 Inland's barrel. I searched for 6 months just to find another '43 inland barrel, it cost $300 plus shipping. In 1972 I bought this little carbine for $125.00. Had to do payments for 3 months to get it. It was my first rifle purchase.

I verified that the carbine, bayonet, magazines and pouch were original. I have been collecting since 1958 and am aware of what is G.I. Take care...

WOW I'm so happy my great uncle Andy left me his after he passed on
it's a very fun gun to shoot but in 1984 I bought a mini-14 in staid on a M1 Carbine because I found a very good Mini-14 for 1/2 the $450 the Carbine was going for, but Man over $1000 that a ton of cash

Carbine prices are going high and HIGHER! At the Morris gun show last weekend the M1 Carbines were going for $800-$1.100, depending on manufacturer.

Sorry but mine is a DCM purchase in 1964, cost me $17 plus shipping, near perfect.

I also tried to find a replacement barrel. they use to be $25 (new in Cosmline); from DCM. NOW---WOW.

I went to just a scrub.rust clean mode.
If anyone sees mil barrel for the carbine, please give a shout.
