commercial m1 carbine

I have a National Ordnance Inc with serial number 6526
If I were to sell this gun, what would be a fair asking price?
This gun is missing the clip, and I have never fired it. (I havent)
It looks newer than any guns I own...but that isnt saying much.

Also, are there saftey issues with this reproduction that I need to be aware of?

Thanks for the resource.

Re: commercial m1 carbine

there can be issues with the bridge being out of spec, letting a round be fired without the action being fully engaged.
I think I payed $275 for my Nat Ord carbine in 2004. Of course, it had a cheesy finish on the stock, metal handguard, junk front & rear sights, so that affected the price a bit. Want to post pics of what your looks like? Depending on what it has, it can be worth more. Mine now looks like a USGI M1 carbine, but of course, its still not worth what a USGI carbine would go for.

Right now they are selling for between $300 and $375 depending on condition. Ordinarily the price is about $50 lower, but the current (Obama) market is running high.

Re: commercial m1 carbine

Guy down the street from me has one of these. I think he said he paid $175 or $200 for it a year or two ago. I told him I'd give him $300 for it anytime he wants to part with it. I know it works because he had it at the club and it ran just fine.

I wouldn't sell anything National Ordnance to any one I personally was friends with.

N.O. carbines can be a pain, however, they can pretty much take any GI part, so if there is a problem with something it can be swapped out. At least its not a universal...

"...a National Ordnance Inc..." It's not a commercial carbine. It's a rebuild using imported parts. Doesn't use a 'clip' either. Mags aren't terribly hard to get though. It has no collector value. Have a look here for info.

My Nat Ord is definitely not a rebuild, there are very fer GI parts on it. GI parts were buttplate , bolt and its parts, mag catch, possibly some of the springs, maybe sear. Not feeling like ripping it down now, but almost all of the parts are not GI.

Re: commercial m1 carbine

Many of the early NO carbines were almost entirely GI. But the later ones were mostly commercial manufacture parts. The receivers were investment castings and the barrels had either a welded on gas cylinder or milled one that was part of a sleeve pressed on to a cut down M1903 barrel. Like the Universal Carbine, it went through several phases/models.
