I bought a russian SKS for $79 at a farm supply store. I ran thousands of round of east german ammo thru it. Never cleaned it once and sold it
a couple years later for $125.00

I have to think that some of us have more than one gun.
You think? I'd bet a batch of people here have more than a dozen.

It means they are running out of things to sell in the store and are clearing out the inventory.

It may not be an M1 Carbine, but they did just post a Model of 1899 Carbine (Krag) to the auction.

One of the few Krags I can say with certainty started "life" as a carbine - since all 1899 Krags were built as carbines.

It is a wall hanger. The barrel is completely shot out.

I haven't seen a carbine on the auction side in a couple weeks at least. Seems perhaps the end in nearing in availability, at least until the Koreans make it here if they ever do.

Makes me glad I bid on my M1A1. It looks like it was the second to last one they had left. (Unless they start appearing again.)
