Carbine Heartbreak!

The CMP has finally posted prices for the soon to be released M1 Carbines. At this time only the Inland manufactured rifles are priced.

Heartbreak city: They're priced at $495! In itself, not a bad price considering the prices found elsewhere. Unfortunately the carbines will have no accessories. Just the rifle: no sling, no cleaning kit, and most importantly, no magazines. Heh, just pick them up elsewhere! Like here? How many do you want? Better get more than one.

In fact, it would be best to get them right now. Once the carbines get released, you'll be competing with everyone else. The law of supply and demand will be well exercised once the buying frenzy commences. Expect parts and accessories prices to rise precipitously. If you want one - and just one is all you can buy this year - be prepared.
