The M1 Carbine gods smiled upon me twice in two days.

I traded a Beretta 92 FS and $200 cash for my first carbine on Wednesday. It is a nice Quality Hardware gun with the Buffalo Arms 1943 barrel. I got a second one from the same gentleman the very next day. This one is a Saginaw receiver with a Saginaw barrel. I will take it apart and get better pics on Saturday. It has early features as well, just like the Quality Hardware gun. I waited years to get an M1, now I have two nice ones. This one was $700.

You did very well, congrats. Those a fantastic little rifles. I've always been a big fan. I've even used mine in multi-gun matches for the sheer joy of shooting them.

Hey you did fantastic! I love the M1 Carbine. I have a 6.2 mil Rock-ola. It is a very accurate shooter especially with my reloads!

Those M1 carbines just have their level of cool to them.

I have two of them, and they are very much fun to shoot. Handy as well. They travel well. And a lot of people will talk down about the round. But when you consider that they were meant to replace the handgun for rear echelon troops. I think that this was a really good way to go. If I had a choice to go into harms way with a 1911A1 or an M1 carbine, I would take the carbine any day of the week.

Nice acquisition. I would have traded my Beretta plus cash for an M1 too. Always wanted one of those. It was the first gun I've shot.

Had two at different times over the years. Would like to have a good shooter again.

Congrats! Always fine to score the things you've wanted for a long time. Hope they do you right.

They look nice.

I hope you have lots of fun shooting them and taking care of them and that if needed they take care of you.

Very nice acquisitions, at more than nice prices.

I saw two at the gun show today. One was a Quality Hardware, and the other was an Underwood. They were in better shape than the others I've seen lately. They were also a few hundred dollars less than they've been.

I hope to have one before this summer ends.

How does the .30 caliber compare to a .357 out of a rifle?
