    A local FFL told me that IMI is importing M1 Carbines that retail around $450. Anyone know if this is true, and how to hook a dealer up with one?

    G3, aimsurplus.com HAD them listed a bit back but they aren't listed now. Give them a call.
     

  3. IAI is selling their own Carbines... none have been imported since komrad klinton(refuse to hi cap the first letter) signed the import ban......

    Robert you are correct. It's IAI NOT IMI. My error.

    I finally got a chance to try mine out (IAI). Mine was with that awful-looking metal handguard, so I waited until I got a walnut handguard and B/band w/bayonet lug. I am pleased to say that I had zero malfunctions, and had a ball shooting it! Why I never got one of these before, I can only chalk up to stupidity. Excellent little gun!

    IMI M-1 Carbine

    IMI will not be importing any M-1 Carbines. Our company purchased all that were in the counrty about 4 years ago. The price then was over $ 450, dealer cost.
    We have one left. Price is almost double.
