Like many people, my safe is too full and my bank account is too empty. I can't justify keeping all the carbines I have, so I'll be selling some of them this summer.

Please email me for data sheets on a rifle, questions, pics, etc. I'm happy to get you the information you need. These are all over 50 years old and on the C&R list, so we can do a face to face (FTF) transaction in person with just a CA DL. I'm also happy to ship to your FFL for $25 or meet you at a local FFL if you feel more comfortable doing a private party transfer.

Winchester M1 Carbine $850 FTF
Quality Hardware M1 Carbine $650 FTF
Inland Div. M1 Carbine *Traded*

I will consider any trades, but I'm weakest when it comes to pre-1960 stuff. I'm now open to shipping these :)

It is a CMP Service Grade Winchester that I picked up back in January. I cleaned it up, refinished the stock and have begun restoring it with the addition of a few Winchester parts. I have replaced all the springs and cleaned out all the cosmoline. This rifle is ready to take to the range when you pick it up, and is in GREAT shape.

Here is the info:

Winchester M1 Carbine
Serial #: 5584xxx
Approx. Mar/Apr 1944

If they're still here by the end of the month when I get my paycheck, I'll send you a PM :D
