    The CMP just sold a bunch of Inlands for $495, of course these were imports and rebuilt at some time.

    Hilton, that is the essence of auctions; only YOU can decide your max bid.

    You can look at actual sales of M1 carbines on this site using the search feature, but that can leave your head spinning because carbines are a specialized area & it's often difficult to figure why the big price spread. Let me help you out here, by pointing out that non-import-marked USGI carbines, fresh from arsenal rebuild, have been selling in the $850-900 range. However, the one you bid on has a sanded birch replacement stock, which is not quite as desirable as a walnut stock; &, the seller doesn't tell us the Muzzle Wear measurement, so the barrel may be like new, or shot out. The odds are that it is a good barrel, but you have no recourse if it is not.

    It's your choice whether or not to raise your bid.

    Duckhunter, dcs shooters is on the right track. And, that's exactly where the seller bought THIS carbine in May. Although technically imported, the law permits CMP to bypass stamping them.
