What would this price tag be ?

Depending on the condition for a surplus M1 Carbine they can run between $700-$850 and that's generally the price range for a replica as well.

The M-1 Carbine is chambered in .30 carbine. Totally different round. I don't know of any that are chambered in anything else, but I supposed it's possible for someone to make a wildcat.

The M1 Carbine is chambered for the .30 Carbine cartridge. The closests thing to an M1 Carbine chambered in 30-06 would be an M14/M1A. If you wanted something that is similar to the M1 Garand, M1 Carbine, and M14/M1A then the rifle would be the Mini 14. It's action is based off of the M1 Garand, the bolt can be held back by pushing in a button like the M1 Carbine, and it takes a detachable magazine like the M1A and M1 Carbine.

My very first rifle was a actual military issued M1 Carbine. My Dad gave it to me when I was 9 and I used it for all my huntin until I was 18. Great, fun, CHEAP to shoot! Killed a lotta deer with that thing. I still use her to hunt coyotes and to go turtle shooting' every chance I get!

I've honestly never been to a gun show where there wasn't an original or at least a good repro gun for a good price....

one other thing. replicas of the m1 carbine you have to get parts from the manufacturer. surplus parts dont work with the replicas.
