I checked the CMP as soon as I got home. They dont have any prices on the higher grade M1's as they are sold out. I wanted a cheap shooter but this M1 is haunting me now. I wish I knew enough about the guns to know if its really a good deel. CMP rifles are running a little less for mixed parts but after I add in the transfer fee I am near the same price range.
Concentrated power is not rendered harmless by the good intentions of those who create it.
