That's not too bad, but I heard somewhere that taking the gas piston off is hard to do, is this true?

I dont know what make of M1 carbine you where shooting zaitsev44...if its not a ''USGI M1 carbine'' like a universal,iver johnson,ect. it want have a gas nut,it will have a pin that holds the gas piston in place. I think? lol

If yours is a USGI carbine...forget what I wrote^^^

By the way,where are you finding Wolf brand m1 carbine ammo? & is it really that dirty?

It's a original 1943 national postal meter. It's pretty dirty, there was a nice thick coat of carbon around the piston. I've never used wolf before do I had no knowledge of it being crap and it was $25 for 50, the best price I've seen around me and it was in stock so I got a box.

And for the place I found it, my LGS has both Lake City in the individual 50 round boxes for $40 and 1000 or so rounds for $999 in the .30 ammo cans and they had 10 of those or so. The place I got mine at is where I hunt, they had federal and wolf, that place has lots of ammo for a good price and a bunch of surplus ammo.

Well, not to make you cry but I bought some Aquila from CMP after Hussein Obama was elected at $164 for 500 rounds plus shipping, and a year ago a little sealed tin surplus Remington Arms in bandoliers on stripper-clips for $0.50/round from an aquaintance I'd been asking this for from year to year.

Wait to find Aquila in discountable-quantity if you can (you won't easily right now) -- the US-made ammo has always been insanely priced IMO I'm sorry to say.

I see it all selling for more tha $0.50/rnd when it is out of stock and basically near at least $1.00/rnd otherwise...

Sounds like a sweet shooter zaitsev44

whoa $25 bucks for a box of wolf guess thats still not to bad if you can find it for that nowadays @ the panic prices we are in

If LC carbine ammo is as good as the LC 7.62X51mm that should be some good/clean shooting stuff.

I miss the days when buying 500rds. of .308 for $80.00bucks...wonder if we'll see those kind of prices again soon? LOL!

I got lucky the other week and found some Aquila M1 carbine ammo @ aimsurplus.com for $18.00 a box.

Have yet to try it out in my universal m1 copy...has anyone tried the Aquila ammo? if so,is it any good?

Not at the moment,if you make a free account with them you can use the ''notify me'' on most of their products & when the item is in stock,it will send a email to your emailaddress.

Their shipping isnt to bad...I think i was charged around $12.00 for 3 boxes of m1 carbine & 5 boxes of 7.5x55 GP11, 28081 area code.
