    I am going to try for a Rockola. I wanted to also get a Quality or IBM but I have two Winchesters from CMPicon and since I don't go to collector meets just take them to the range there is no real reason to get even more types.

    I want but I don't need

    What about jukeboxes and get a Rock-ola? Or typewriters and an Underwood-Elliot-Fisher? You almost need one of each, all of them.

    I wish. Read somewhere in another forum that NPM had the highest per unit bid across all the contracts, and had the slowest production time. Whether that equated to higher quality control, or more attention to final fitting, I dunno...it was certainly fiercely debated in the CMPicon forum (thank god we are so much more civilized over here)
    I was never a big DOS fan, never wasted money in the jukebox as a kid, and already have my matching smith-corona typewriter made the year before they switched to 1903's.

    tinOC,
    I don't think there are any carbines today in original configuration, only corrected ones.
    I think there are many out there. I have 2 a Quality Hardware and a Saginaw S'G'

    Almost everything was gone in 15 minutes. I was stopped in the middle of the checkout process by a short stall in the computer. When it went through, POOF! the item in my cart had disappeared! I didn't have/get the Rock-ola I had in the cart! It was gone because of a computer glitch! I'm one ****ed puppy! One more click and I'd have had it. I even had selected the FFL it was to be shipped to and did the NRA round-up. All I needed to do was click the button to confirm the order and BOOM! it was gone.....
    When they tell you to behave, they always forget to specify whether to behave well or badly!

    Don't feel bad, I didn't have a PC glitch BUT the site was super slow and it hung me up at enter name, I clicked continue and it sat for 3 minutes and I lost the Rockola.

    (I already have 2 Winchesters from CMPicon)

    There are many. Someone tipped me to a potential one almost 2 years ago for a min bid of 900. I didn't bid. Nobody did. There were no internal pics but it's a Winchester in the dogleg range with type I band and flip sight. I asked for pics of the trigger group after it ended and it had it's original group with dogleg. He reran it at $1200. darn.





    I'm still crying today about spending 300 more for it.

    Maybe the glitch was caused by too many people selecting Rockola Carbines than were available that were already in the process of being sold?

    I logged in at 9:07 eastern. There were no "fine" NPM's left, so I checked IBM, no fine or very-good-to-fine of those. I was able to check out with no issues on very-good-to-fine NPM without bayonet lug. took a couple hours to get an order confirmation email, and within a few minutes of that it was marked shipped and I had a tracking number, expected delivery Thurs. Sounds like Larry Mr. Potterfield planned all the logistics ahead for this.
