    Yes more about the rifle, please. I am intrigued. Trying to find one in decent shape, at a decent price, as I carried one in the Nam.

    CMP had them for the past couple of years. The last carbines were built just before the end of WWII. Korean War carbines would have been re-arsenaled WWII pieces. Same with Vietnam era issue.

    USGI carbines in reasonable shape have appreciated considerably in value. If you're not overly concerned with "original, WWII", the Auto-Ordnance carbines of the past couple of years seem to be a good alternative. Kahr Arms, who owns Auto-Ordnance, has spent a good amount of time and money upgrading their QC, and the later carbines have benefited from that.:)
