I recommend that you ask "dan_fl". He has some good knowledge concerning the M1 Carbine.

The bore and chamber looks good, but the stock is pretty rough shape. I know it takes .30 Carbine ammo, how hard is that to get and is it costly (I do reload, so that's not a huge deal). I don't have any number of yet. I would be looking to add this to my stable as an occasional plinker, but mainly just as a cool old service rifle.
Thanks for any help
