I am gonna keep the M1 for sure. but the Ruger P944 has got to go, It just flat out doesn't fit my hands right. If I don't sell all my 40S&W with it I think I want to get a Beretta Storm, an XD or maybe an HK USP. But I'm kinda thinking of getting out of .40 S&W platform for good and spending the money on more .45 ACP and getting a nice 1911 and maybe even giving the Storm or XD a shot in .45 ACP. I'm trading my only .45, a 1943 Ballester Molina for a mint 1917 Eddystone, hell of deal.

Who makes it? They are produced by several makers and not all the same quality.

What caliber?

How many rounds through it?

Don't you think you might want to know how many rounds the guy has got through it?

Century arms isn't known as the "BMW" of the gun world, if you know what I mean.

You want the .308 semi auto? Check the number of rounds and go for it.

The FAL is a great design, that has withstood the test of time, and it's a very reliable platform.

Accuracy - Eh, not so much in my personal experience.... But, Minute of Bad Guy? All day long....

I would still say, keep the M1. If the FAL was from DSArms or Entreprise, I would probably do it, depending on condition of the piece.

Most of the Century pieces were hit or miss as far as how well they were put together, quality control, etc. They would probably be far down the list of what I might take in a trade. However, you might get lucky and get one that they took time putting together, and all of the parts line up correctly, barrel is still in good shape, FCG works the way it should, and little to no slop in the action. Then again...."pigs could fly" first. It's anyone's guess, but I would definitely have it checked by someone knowledgeable before making the trade.

Also depends on what shape your M1 is in, too.

Slo

OK, I've decided for sure to hold on to the M1 Carbine. I traded my Ballester-Molina for a really nice 1917 Eddystone Enfield (June 1918), its in excellent condition. I also think I found a buyer for my Ruger P944 Special Edition and 40 S&W ammo. NOW, the question is what .45 do I buy???? I'm leaning towards a Springfield 1911a1 G.I. Stainless that this guy has for $500. Its in great shape, low rounds. But I'm also interested in an XDm or a HK (both more expensive). What do you guys think??? And does anyone know if the Springfield GI models have removable sights so I can get Tritium sights???
