They are cool little plinkers but not more than a $500 plinker.
IF Midway has bought ALL the EX-CARBINIERI M1 Carbines, they may be reasonable in price. = An old friend from Italy told me once that their CENTRAL CARBINIERI ARMORY was FULL of cases of carbines, that were "transferred" to the Italian Armed forces after WWII & thereafter given to the civil police..
(I would think that THOUSANDS of M1 Carbines sold on the US market would drop carbine prices to a more reasonable level.)
As I paid about 100 bucks for an arsenal rebuilt & "mint" ROCKOLA Carbine in 2010, I simply cannot see the current prices being "normal".
(I gave my carbine to a family member, who wanted it BAD about 2012-13.)
Its a damn shame really. Wish I was around when these were affordable. 1500 for a plinker is about 1000 too much for meRoyal Tiger is selling them at over $1K I think, so I’m guessing these will be at least that. They could probably price them at $1500 and sell out quick. I would love a Rock-Ola, but I already know they’re gonna be overpriced.
