On 28 Jan I mailed my order form to the CMP for an Underwood service grade M1 carbine. On 4 Mar they emailed and said they recieved the order wait for 60-90 days to hear more. On 29 Apr the debit hit my account and today they emailed me a tracking number. FedEx says it will be here tomorrow. Now I got to get out of work early so I can play with it.

Good deal. A friend of mine ordered one in January also, and just got it on Monday. It's like his 8th or 9th one from the CMP. This one is rack grade, and it's in better condition than some of his service grades.

I need a good lawyer. I told the wife the FedEx was expected at 1030 make sure she was around. I went home for a long lunch at 1100 to check out the new haardware only to find out she didn't hear the doorbell. I am thinking about divrcing her but it might be cheaper to dig a hole.

She said she is going to pick it up at the FedEx depot this evening, so we will see what happens. If not I will need a blueprint on an eternal resting place.

I wouldn't talk like that about anyone in public, especially your spouse, even though you are joking. You just never know...

Yeah you are right the havenots are watching. It just pissed me off earlier. If she redeems herself tonight it would be cool, if not I will get t tomorrow when they redeliver. She said it isn't a big deal and I had to calmly explain to her what 4 months of waiting can do to a mans nerves. She still doesn't understand but understands it is a touchy subject today.

Relax...when you get the Carbine..its not as if there is any ammo around to run through the thing! LOL

Seriously..have you tried to FIND 30 Carbine lately? Have you PRICED it? Be sitting down when you do both of those things.

Sad, because the Carbine is a hoot to shoot.

I love my Carbine. A bit underpowered, maybe, but a great little rifle!
