I bought a M1 Carbine made by Iver Johnson from a gun shop here in Cincinnati a few years back. It looks almost like new.It shoots great. I was told that they were sent to Israel by our Government during the 1967 War. The guy at the Gun Shop told me the Pesident Clinton allowed some of them back into the country to be sold to the American Public. I don't know if any of the story was true but It is in really good condtion. I paid $ 400.00 for it. The M1 Carbine has always been my favorite Military Rifle. (I grew up watching Combat with my Dad) I was just wondering if anyone else has heard anything about M1 Carbines coming back from Israel? It doesn't really matter to me if any part of the story is true because I would have bought is no matter where it came from just because I have always wanted one.
