Watch all sorts of places. CMP Carbine Forum, and the Carbine Forum, are both places to look--if the intention is a M Military Carbine. And, some of those will not be $1200 mystery machines. Of the current manufacturers--only Fulton seems to have little in the way of bad press. Everyone else has endless tales of woe. The New Inland is using cast parts by AO; the AO copies not getting much in the way of great press. The New Rockola are not moving that fast, and are rumored to be chock full of New Inland and IAI parts of dubious fit. My most recent one was from a local THR member, matter of fact. And at a reasonable price, too.
