    Hi, Gents!

    I was just offered an almost NIB carbine, and it's tempting me, since it's under $400. :)

    Any reasons not to add it to my rack? I've heard there were problems with recoil buffers, stock cracks, and recoil springs, but figured if I can get an aftermarket buffer and put in a heavier Wolff spring, I should be okay - but did I miss something?

    Thanks.... I'd like to put this in my own stocking for Christmas, but only if it's a good idea:D

    It's a good price if you want a .45 carbine. I'd certainly be tempted.

    :what: You didn't jump on it? That's a least $100 less than what they go for and they are not that easy to find. If you don't want it I'll take it! :)

    Good lord, NIB can do that to even a sensible man. That just might bring a few out, have to watch the auctions next couple weeks.
    JJohnson, those guns were $400 about four years ago and the 9mm 250-300, now $500 is pretty standard and the much more common 9mm are bringing $350!

    Last one I saw at a gun show (~3 months ago) had an asking price of $600.
