Historic M1 Carbines on Sale Now

While this site is dedicated to precision rifles, we know many of our readers also collect historic military rifles. On April 27, the Civilian Marksmanship Program, ODCMP.com, announced the sale of genuine M1 Carbines. The first group of rifles are “Service Grade” produced by the Inland company. Note, these will be hot sellers at $495.00, and we expect the allotment to sell out quickly. M1s from other manufacturers will be offered later in 2007 and into 2008. The CMP has announced: “Orders for M1 Carbines manufactured by INLAND are now being accepted. The Inland carbines are priced at $495.00 each plus $22.95 S&H. Other manufacturers will not be available until later in the year. We are not accepting orders or establishing waiting lists at this time.” In addition, “Inland Cabines will be available for sale in both CMP Stores (North and South) beginning on 3 May. Carbines will also be available for inspection at the CMP Easter Games and CMP Western Games.” Note, most of these Inland Carbines are coming in from Italy, and their stocks are marked with a “FAT” cartouche (Fabbrica Armi Terni).

UPDATE: As of 5/21/2007 All Inland M1 Carbines are SOLD OUT. Check with CMP for future Carbine Sales.
