    Should be a fun little shooter! $425 @ a local gunshop, not so bad for CA.

    My buddy has one of those and I really enjoyed shooting it. That's the model that shoots the unique .30 cal. carbine ammo, correct?

    Yeah, exactly. I can't wait to shoot it. its almost like a lesser .357 mag round.

    here, I took a pic comparing it to the 30'06(and some other big boys)... huge difference.

    Hey there, interesting that you could pick one up in Panama, especially what I believe to be a commercially produced model. I think we lend leased carbines to a lot of central/south american countries so I would think it should be USGI.

    Here is a list of USGI producers according to this website: http://bavarianm1carbines.com/manufacturers.html

    The stock on mine I am told is a post war "pot belly" type. Since it is not original to the manufacturer I think I will end up refinishing it to make it look nice.

    Gotta love an M1 carbine. That is a very good deal for CA prices. You would have a hard time finding a nice Winchester M1 in Texas for that price.
