This was taken from the CMP site today -- it is from the CEO of CMP --

We have no reason to believe we will ever again receive more carbines. Even if were to receive more, there is no reason to believe they will be better than what we now have.

Point -- If you want an CMP Carbine -- better get it now!! I may just have to order a couple more!!

Cap, Out of the ones they have listed under Rack Grade which one would you buy? Is one a little better than the other?

They were all made using the same specs ... Here is what is currently available:

UNDERWOOD $479
WINCHESTER $575
SAGINAW S'G' $595
NATIONAL POSTAL METER $479
STANDARD PRODUCTS $495

Seems that the Winchesters are always in demand simply due to the manufacture name. Here are the total production %s for each of the manufactures still available:

Winchester 13.5%
Underwood 8.9%
Saginaw Steering Gear 8.5%
National Postal Meter 6.8%
Standard Products 4.0%

As you can see, Standard Products only produced 4% of the total, yet they can still be had for less than the Winchester or Saginaw. I would say it would just be a matter of personal preference.

Sold it this morning --- looked rough!! However, it did come with an original Winchester stock (small crack on left side - repairable) .. came with an Underwood barrel dated 12/1943 and with a pushbutton safety ... should have taken a few pictures. My other Winchesters were in much better shape .. a buddy wanted one so now it is his ...

Here are the others ...

I attended a gun auction last night that had several M1 Carbines up for auction, a Winchester and a Underwood and both in exc. condition. One sold for $350 and the other for $375 to the same bidder. The Chinese cheap stamped receiver AK 47 clones sold for much more. $400 up. The old veterans, like me, that had the pleasure to have used the carbines and Garands while in the service and wanted one have either bought one, are now either too old and no longer care about having one or have died.
Winning bids for M1 Garand bayonets w/case went for $7.50 to $10. 22 were auctioned off with the last five being sold in a group of five for $45.
