    The Blue Sky imports were mostly brought back from Korea. A lot of them had less than excellent bores. I'd give the bore a good look over.

    Around here import marked carbines top out at about $500.

    I have a 43 Inland :)

    I wouldn't pay that much for an Inland (most common maker) that was imported by Blue Sky (came back from Korea) and has been refinished (lowers collector value).

    A gun like that is a shooter, and $700 is way to high for a shooter.

    The prices on carbines, including imports, are going up. I agree $700 is a little high, but it might be worth haggling over.

    I think if you can get him to $600, it would be worth considering.

    In 5 yrs, you will think you got a bargain.
