Sorry, you're too late!! They sold out in one day. Waiting to hear if my order was one that got there in time.

Wasn't a fan of the sale. Couldn't pick the manufactur, didn't know the condition of what you'd get, pre or post war you couldn't pick. Not a whole lot of collector value in thisw batch

Also I've owned 3 carbines now and all 3 had the front hand guard come off while shooting. With that going on and the underpowered round I can see why the GI's loathed them

Don't worry. There are some spectacular ARs on sale this week for $500.
