This is an extremely rare, 100% legal open bolt carbine. The Eagle Carbine was developed and manufactured in small numbers from 1964-68. A man by the name of Bill Ordner developed the .45 ACP Eagle Carbine, patterned around the M3 Grease Gun and used genuine Thompson 1928 wood stocks in their construction. Bill owned the Eagle Gun Company, which he operated out of his house in Stratford, Connecticut. The factory where the Eagle Carbine was actually manufactured, was located in northeast Pennsylvania. Bill would travel to the factory to proof fire new stock and pick up shipments of Eagle Carbines for resale to dealers until his factory was controversially burnt down in 1968. The Eagle Mark I, followed later by the Mark II version, were the first of several open bolt carbines to be manufactured and sold in the 1960's. These were followed by the Spitfire, the Apache and the Commando Carbine which appeared in the early 1970's. All were semiauto carbines that fired either .45 ACP or 9mm pistol cartridges using surplus Thompson, M3 or Sten magazines. The Spitfire's and Apache's were later banned by the ATF and reclassified as "machine guns", in effect making the already rare Eagle Carbine one of the only legal versions of this type of firearm.
This gun is in very good condition. No trades PM for pics

This is very much like a repost of the linked Armslist ad.

Make your own judgement.

Okstatefan.. did u consider that I didn't want to sit and type the history of the Eagle?? The gun is very much sitting with my dad, he's had it for 15 yrs. I test fired it last month. Make your own judgement and move on please.

This gun is a shooter. My dad (and son with a fast finger) have together shot 300 rds I have shot around 300.. and yes it's a freaking blast and very very fast. It will quickly bankrupt you any 45 ACP stockpile that u have that's for sure!... It uses both Thompson and m3 clips.
Pic on its way.

They do not shoot faster then any other carbine but some will fire full auto if you hold down the safety when you pull the trigger. Even if this one will not do that any open bolt semi auto can be converted to a full auto with a few minutes of work which if why they command such a premium price and why the ATF banned them from further production.

After consulting a firearms dealer, the value he put on it is between 3-4000 and maybe higher after Nov. I guess these are more rare than I thought.

I'm updated the price as I am in no need to sell.
New Price is $3000, or $2500 and a Glock 26,27, or 43.
Gun has 4 hi cap clips
