I have here a very nice condition (VG+) later Universal .30 Cal M1 Carbine. It is 318k serial number range. Original condition. Excellent bore with 2 15-round USGI magazines, a leather sling, metal ventilated hand guard, hardwood stock, and a rifle case. There are some scratches on the bluing on the barrel not sure what from but only cosmetic. Typical usage dings in the stock. Price is $550. I might be open to trades - can particularly use lever action Marlins (JM stamped) and pre-1983 S&W and Colt revolvers, also like 1911s.
I need to do a FTF in the North Dallas area (I am in Plano.) First to say the take it, gets it. I do have it cross listed. I can be reached via PM or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
No bucks, I don't know exact year. What I do know is that it is a 3rd generation carbine and the 3rd generation began around 180k and ended around 480k serial number range. They were sold to Iver Johnson in 1983 so my best guess would be early 80's on this one.
