I just saw an Erma Carbine recently. I want to say it was in the $350 range, and was scoped... don't recall whether the rear sight had been removed or not. It was in very nice shape, though. I always liked those guns, but I'm not sure I like them at $300+.

I went with the 10/22 clone. Very handy shooter.

Default If I was told I could only have one gun

I would keep the 10-22. You could live off that rifle and pack enough ammo for a decade in a backpack. It is also a passable defensive weapon if you do your part.

Did anyone ever confirm if you could swap the stocks from USGI to the Citadel or vice-versa?

I'm interested in a Citadel synthetic stock for my USGI. Don't ask why.

Allan's Armory has a couple of these Erma EM-1 .22LR carbines available http://www.allans-armory.com/aaresult.php?PageId=69 Made in West Germany, same model imported by Iver Johnson and sold under their name. They look very cool and would be a nice alternative to the Chiappa or re-stocked Ruger 10/22 for an M1 Carbine-ish plinker.

Just received this reply directly from Chiappa. Didn't dream of being this lucky!

"Dear Bill,

Thank you for your support and interest in Chiappa Firearms! Although we do not currently have the stocks available (all stocks were dedicated for production) we will have extras available on our sales website very soon! Both our synthetic and wood stocks will work fine on your M-1 Carbine.

Please keep checking, we really want to make them available as soon as possible."

Now I'll have a "set" of EBRs!

get a new production 15-round magazine (don't ruin a USGI one) http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/MAG343-36.html, cut it down to the size that sticks out below a real M1 Carbine trigger housing, then epoxy it to the bottom of the Ruger 10/22 magazine.
Where do you suppose any of us would find a 10/22 right about now?

I saw one with a synthetic stock at Big 5 in Longmont, CO this week for $199. No 22 LR ammo, though...

They're still out there, but you've gotta be ready to buy when you see one. I saw a couple at our local sporting goods store a few weeks ago, but wasn't familiar with the model, so I went home to research, came back, and they were gone.
FWIW: I've got an M1 Carbine stock headed my way and I'm going to see if I can bed my Remington 597 action in it.

Too bad we can no longer import firearms from China. They could manufacture 22 cal replicas of anything out of steel and hardwood and sell them for a decent price. When the Chinese want to manufacture a quality item they can do it. Trouble with most Chinese junk is that they make it to the buyers specifications. Want cheap crap to sell in your business you'll get cheap crap.
