Bought a Rockola

Discussion in 'The Powder Keg' started by bob white, Apr 12, 2002.

  1. Guys , I just bought a Rockola carbine, I have been looking for a really good one for some time. This will give me 5 GI carbines. A Winchester, Quality HMC, Inland w/ m-8 grenade launcher, another Inland, and now the Rockola. All are non- imports, all are excellent condition, all are correct. I am so fired up that I had to tell somebody who can appreciate how excited I am.

  3. Tommy, I just got another one, this is a Saginaw SG ,not the grand rapids plant. I don't know how this happened. It just sort of mushroomed. I wanted a Winchester to match up with a Winchester Garand that I restored to all winnie, and it grew from there. I'm just enjoying it,not fighting it. bob
