    Ahh, yes. Back in the days when common sense was more common than drug use in employees. When I went to work in the refinery, all that stuff was "optional". Now you're automagically fired for...

    Weird, there's a seller from France that sells on "US" E-Bay all the time, all kinds of M-1 Carbine parts. What would make magazines any different from other gun parts?
