RG Inland from CMP,with mostly WRA parts. I immediately traded it to Dean at DGRguns for a WRA receiver. After we got it 100% correct, he dropped it into my custom made Wineg stock.

I stopped counting after I hit $2k.

Visiting Orion 7, buying my 1st Garand, and while doing paper work, I started fondling the m1 carbines...
Went back and picked up my 1st carbine, NPM mix master..

Next two rifles were from the CMP, another NPM carbine (they just ran out of IBMs), and an HRA SG.

I got a carbine from a gun store in AZ for $300 (era 2003) it was a USGI but I cant for the life of me remember what manufacture it was (it stayed in the base armory so I didn't get to play with it much). It came with a synthetic black stock and I got a nice USGI off ebay for it, I liked shooting that gun.

I later bought my AR15 and the ammo (at the time) was a lot cheaper for the AR so I shot it a lot more. I ended up selling it to fund a purchase for a handgun I never bought when I turned 21. I wish I would have got a replacement from the CMP before they ran out, I regret that sale so much, but it thought me a valuable lesson, dont sell guns

I think the second one is significant...that's when you know you got the Carbinitis!
Last June, I stopped in the NS to look at WRA Garands. I overheard somebody say they were out of carbines. Then it hit me...OMG, their out and I only have one? After an hour or so, I happen to look in the corner and saw what appeared to be one carbine. Sure enough, it looked like the last Christmas tree that nobody wanted. It had rust spots, an ugly
FAT unstained birch stock. It was a 2.8 Underwood with the correct 2-44 Underwood barrel (ME=<2), Underwood slide and Underwood trigger housing.
Feeling badly for the little War Baby, I took it home and nursed it back to health. Not knowing for sure, but this could be last carbine sold out of the North Store...
