We sold a lot of "correct" carbines at gun shows through the late 2000s. Correct because a friend had bought tons of parts kits from CMP over the years, and when he tried to get his garage back we mixed and matched as best as possible.
A gun show wheeler dealer did that with Garands. At the time, the CMP limit was five rifles per member, so he signed up his whole family and bought 25 guns and some spare parts. Mixing and matching left him with five or six "correct" rifles with all parts of the same make and period. Those he sold for a large profit, sold the rest of the ordinary mixed guns for a small profit, kept one for himself pretty much free.
