Hello
Just got back from Hawkes Bay Arms & Militaria Auction

Spent lots of money (more than I should)
But got some good stuff....

Check photo - will post more photos in a few days when I sort out other things I brought and have some time

Now that's a kitchen table to make us all jealous Exclamation

Congrats on getting that haul home, I cant wait to hear the individual stories, was there anything Carbine related that you let any one else at the auction get their hands on Question Laughing

Not much other M1 stuff there, only really some ammo & 1 more M1 carbine (Winchester) which went very high

In photo is a mag pouch and 2 x 15 round mags I got
Pouch marked: B.B., INC 1943 - although I am pretty sure it is a repro (its too tidy)

Mags are good and markings are some I dont have:
OI B & BW

The M1's pictured also had good mags (not pictured) 2 x 30 and another 15

PostSubject: Recent purchase   Sun Jan 31, 2010 1:10 pm

I'm new here... and so is my purchase of my 1st M1 Carbine. It says Underwood 1-44 on the barrel... Serial number is 2186*** with US Carbine cal 30 stamped above the chamber. I tried to post photos so since this is my 1st attempt... we'll see.
Anyone have any idea what it's worth?

If you don't mind my asking, what do M1 Carbines sell for in NZ? In the US, the prices are all over the place, you may pay as little as $300 to $400 for an "import" carbine in OK shape. You can also spend several thousand on a very nice carbine that some how evaded the US Government improvements such as type 3 rear sight staked in place and type 3 barrel band & bayonette lug. I am just curious and of course there is a different currency in play.
