All, the is a guy in Lubbock with an M1 Carbine and a 1917 Eddystone. The prices seem almost too good, but if legit, I will buy them both.

if you live in Lubbock and would consider checking these rifles out for me, please pm me and I’ll give you the guy’s address. Then, if it isn’t across town from you and not overly inconvenient, would you consider doing this?

Did the ad list the location?
Did the seller know your location first?

Just be careful...

Good questions. He did not know that I’m in the Dallas area before he told me he is in Lubbock. And I requested he take and send me a picture of the butt end of each one (thinking that if he has the rifles he can take the pics, and if he doesn’t have them I would not hear from him again). The next day I got the pics and address. His IP address shows to be in Lewisville rather than Lubbock though.

There is enough that doesn’t feel “right”, but just enough that feels “ok” for me to want to have someone actually see and touch them. If legit, I’m going to buy both.

I’ve never been scammed on something like this and don’t plan on being scammed now. If I don’t find someone who doesn’t mind checking them out, then it will be a “hard pass” on my part.

The rifles built at Eddystone had their barrels seated using an air impact type tool in order to increase production speed. This put stress on the receiver ring and if the original barrel is changed, sometimes a crack will appear on the ring rendering the receiver
Now, that's the kind of quality content I signed up to see here! I'm adding that to my gunsmithing notebook today, and thanks for posting it.
