    I had one come to me a few years back after waiting for many more years for one...and it had several issues. I could have messed with it but chose to do exactly that, sold it through a friend and it now resides with a collector in Germanyicon as far as I know. Otherwise you could get into it for tons before it was sorted out.

    Regards, Jim

    I ended up getting a buyer pretty quickly. Got out of the gun what I had in it. He was happy to buy it even with the timing issues.

    I shoot all of my guns, so any that canít be shot much get moved along. Iíve got a garand on the way from the CMPicon and Iím looking for an M1icon Carbine as well. Iíve had a couple of both in the past and Iíve always enjoyed them!

    Agreed completely, if there's an issue it has to go. When you get the M1s, let us have a look?

    Good on ya for being upfront on the issues. Some folks (raises hand) love a good project. Sounds like that one was a good project.
    Everyone's happy!
