I don’t mind it being a rebuild. From what I’ve read, a large majority were rebuilt just after the war. Kind of like most Garands are parts guns but still collected by many.

Thank goodness we are still able to find and own such guns as the 1911 and the M1 Carbine. Not so with some military weapons. It's practically impossible to own a true-blue M14 and people go to the extremes of cutting a perfectly good receiver in half and welding on a de-milled heel just to get the roll-mark and SN. In the Carbine world...that would be a destroyed receiver. In the M14 world, it's the only way to get something close to being real.

I am very happy that original barrelled actions, parts and complete carbines (rebuilt or not) escaped the crushers and are available. A cobbled-together Carbine is still the "real" thing.

But you have seen threads about restoring to make 1911's correct haven't you ....proof that a pistol out the door from the military to CMP to owner is not good enough. ...not correct enough.

Its correct as issued in the military: pure and simple. I can assure you when I was drawing my M2 carbine from the arms room, the menu was not " May I have a Rockola high wood please ". You got your assigned weapon and that was that.

Any temp over 80 is too much for me.....too much like I was in 50 years ago! (You know where I mean! )

Yes and if you read the forums long enough, you may notice the low ball price quotes are when "asking a price", not when those same individuals are trying to sell.


and yes prices are very "Condition" dependent


BTW from the 3 pics posted looks like nice stock set, must look to see if the original cartouches are visible though still, that can also add value

I get what you guys are saying about low ball prices but this is not an original so it is basically a woodless carbine in a nice paratrooper stock.

What does a woodless rebuilt carbine sell for? Maybe a $1000 at the most.

A nice paratrooper stock with rebuild marks? $1500 tops. (I sold one several years ago for $1250.)

Do the math, rebuilds just don't bring the money that non rebuilds do.

Just my opinion.
