I would stop short of calling $800 a good deal, based on the lack of detail in your
description.. If you are not confident in your ability to evaluate its worth, see if the shop will stand behind the rifle and allow you to return it if not satisfied with its functionality. Then, take it to a gunsmith or someone who knows carbines to check it out for you.
Personally, I would not pay $800 for an import but that doesn't mean it won't be a good shooter; just means they can be had for less.

I have 2 one from CMP the other from a purchase I made before I knew about CMP.

They are great shooters. As for 800 I would wait for a better price. When CMP had them I think they were going for 675.

Default NPM used "Free Issue" barrels, one of the companies making these barrels was Buffalo Arms

so yes it could very well be the original barrel. I have a 425XXXX NPM and those were fitted with IBM barrels at the end of production. Free Issue barrels could be made by Underwood, Rockola, Inland, Winchester, Marlin, IBM or BA.

I haven't been to that range yet but I'd bet that targets can go in at 200, 300, 400, and 500 yards. 100 yard ranges I shoot at are capable of 25, 50, 75, and 100 yard. As my 9mm Carbine is shooting a pistol round, it can use the pistol side of the range that is for 3, 5, 7.5, 10, 15, 25, and 50 yards. The 25 yard indoor range is 0 to 25 yards for rifle or pistol and can handle anything up to .50 BMG ammo as long as it isn't AP rounds.

500 yards and iron sights will stretch one's vision.

I am limited to 100 yards at my club. I have had the opportunity on several occasions to shoot an M1 Carbine at 200 yards. It is well within the limitations of the carbine. From the bench off of a rest, you can hold the black, unless there are other issues with the carbine.

500 yards is well within range for your M1903, M1 Garand and M14's.

My boys and I have shot our M1-Carbines at Camp Perry carbine matches and they can handle the 200 yards!!!

Even my Inland which saw a lot of use in Israel handled that distance very well with most of my shots in the black!!!!

425 yards is like indirect fire....
