I've seen nice GI Carbines listed on other web sites sell for less than $800 in recent months, including one with a number of original and quality reproduction accessories. It happens a lot, people want Garands or more modern stuff - the Carbine is a bit of a stepchild!

No, only to the uneducated who don't know what they're looking at. Which is good for a Carbine person. Garand only people don't make sense.

They state: "our M1 Carbines dominate the CMP Games year after year." I have not been to any CMP games, for those who go, is that true?
I am not wanting to do a roast, I just don't know.
I never saw a M1 carbine that could do that. Maybe I dont buy enught (2) or know enough? I know a tight guns vs a loose one. I would not expect 3moa from a old GI carbine. Sure anything can happen. And how you measure MOA. Toss out the frequent fliers? Five or 10 shot groups not 3? Three is stupid.

On the other hand, I dont think they were designed or built with much accuracy as a goal. I am sure. I will take history and that reality over a very expensive Fulton any day. I think, as a general rule and in this case as well, you get what you pay for. Quality never comes cheap. On the other hand top acuracy is not where the quality comes in. Too see that look at a new Auto Ordnance. There is a purchase that makes no sense in my book.
