Hello all. I have been spending the last few days here searching and learning. After 23 years of service with the US Army Special Forces and several combat tours, I join the civilian ranks. I was an Operational Detachment A Commander (ODA CDR) for my last twelve years and finished as a CW3. As the years go on, I no longer want my heavy, built like my Army rifle (Rock River Arms Lar-15 Elite Operator). I would much rather have what my predecessors had, a nice, good shooting M1 Carbine. I had no idea how difficult a task it would be to find one that has not been cannibalized and not astronomically priced. Anyway, glad to be here and look forward to learning everything you folks want to teach me.

Welcome to the forum, and congratulations on your retirement, you’ve earned it and then some.

Only got my first a few months ago, you’re right, not easy to find, but when you get it in your hands you’ll know you have something very special, good luck!
