As I feared, the selection was pitiful. They had maybe a dozen specials (not counting all of the -Ds and -Cs on the racks), but my friend was looking for a couple of good ones with original stocks and finishes, so he passed, and just put in his paperwork for a couple of field grades when they become available. They had a couple of decent 10" bayonets with original (albeit worn) finishes and decent correct US-issue scabbards without repairs. In talking to Mike, he said that the lack of rifles on the shelves and the long waits for mail orders is due in part to the fact that they only have two guys working on prepping them. He also said that a lot of the batch they're working through now came to them as barreled receivers, so it's taking a lot longer to put whole rifles together from parts, vs just cleaning, inspecting, and getting them out the door.

I probably would not mind them not putting rifles in the store if I was waiting on a Carbine, but I am not
I got one Carbine. Just how many of those things does a guy need, anyway
