I finally took the bait, and paid $699.00 for a M1 Carbine at Big 5 Sporting Goods. It's an Inland with an Underwood 4-44 barrel in a WRA GHD stock with a faint crossed cannon. The stock has more than a few dents and dings, but solid. The barrel looks nice and shiny with no pitting. I ran about 50 rounds of Lake City reloads through her at the range on Friday; it was 42 degrees and clear with a slight cross wind. I’ll post a target from 50 yards, 3" group of 10 shoots. I’m happy with the results. I'll post pictures later, for some reason I can't post my pictures?
