Buy a fine semiautomatic American combat rifle now, before Obama realizes that the Government has turned over actual semiautomatic U.S. military rifles to the Civilian Marksmanship Program to sell to Americans. Obama is busy with other important things now, like going to Copenhagen to bring the Olympics to Chicago.
These make excellent collector's pieces, with the added benefit using them for personal defense at a reasonable price.
A limited number of M1 carbines loaned by us to foreign governments, and just returned to us, are available for sale from the Civilian Marksmanship Program. The CMP is the sales agency for this authentic and legitimate government surplus.
Inland, Underwood, Winchester, National Postal Meter, Standard Products, and Saginaw M1 Carbines are available for a limited time for $419.00 to $625.00, depending on manufacturer.
There are the CMP requirements to buy one of these workhorse battle tested classics. Only U.S. Citizens are eligible to buy our own surplus rifles from the CMP. Other than hitting the target every time, this is the only gun control policy that could ever be considered "common sense gun control" because our tax dollars originally paid for these guns, and they should be rightfully returned to American citizens only.
Other requirements are the usual rifle purchase ones. Your application information will be checked against the FBI National Instant Criminal Check System (NICS), but you don't have to fill out the normal 4473 form.
Additionally, you must provide a copy of a U.S. birth certificate(Could Obama do this?), passport, or any other official government document that shows birth in the US. You must provide proof of age, and membership in a CMP affiliated organization. There are many easy to find clubs that you can join online for as little as $25.00. You must show proof of marksmanship or...

There is a long wait for the big backlog. They have been going overtime since the election. Good product though.
I have a Saginaw.
Mfg date Sept, 1943 stamped on the barrel.
Nice little gun.
I’m surprised that Obama didn’t order these guns destroyed rather than put them into the hands of law abiding citizens.
My father and I both got M1 Garands from cmp ( was called DCM)
I want one anyway.
I bought a can of 30.06 from them. Delivery took 5 months. But, they keep you advised on the progress of your order by email. They don’t forget about you. There has been a big backlog and run on surplus firearms and ammunition at CMP since October, 2008 and the advent of the “Obama Age.”
I am from Michigan. How cool is that. A gun made in Saginaw.
Yeah, but can they kill zombies?
There was a bunch of different manufacturers for them back then. Heck, I think RCA might have even been making them.
Mine's a Standard Products, 1944
I’d have way more luck killing them with the carbine than with any of my handguns.
I can barely hit the side of a barn with a pistol, but am pretty spot on with a long gun.
Not RCA it was NCR.
I.B.M made them during WWII too. What an International Business Machine!
That dinky little carbine has probably laid to rest more enemies of western civilization than any other single firearm.
Not only was it employed against Germany and Japan in WWII, it saw use against the n. Koreans and their Chinese Allies, and was used well into the Viet Nam conflict.
Above and beyond all that, it was pretty popular with the French in both North Africa and Indochina, and put to good use by the Israelis in many of their early conflicts, and was later employed in the Magal designed for Israeli police special operations (which used plain carbine mags)
Certainly there are more powerful cartridges out there, but the .30 carbine should not be sold short...
