Looks like a bunch of carbines to the right rear. What about them?

Did you look at all nine of them, or you just know the exhibitor?

Thanks for the answer, when I don't trust someone, I don't even look at their carbines.

Do I see arsenal rebuilt Carbines on that display? Looks like about 6 with bayonet lugs.

You must be referring to the ones in the back ground. Mine are untouched, original, as manufactured. And yes, the ones in background were all rebuilt. Don't fool with rebuilt one's, unless at a good price with good parts.

Judging from the items on your table you must be a good source for parts. What's for sale?

Yes, the ones on the other table that have bayo lugs and adjustable sights that some appear to be arsenal rebuilt. I wouldn't consider those humped. Even partially corrected ones might not be humped. Humped would indicate fake parts or or ground off import marks. Poor corrections would just be parts guns to me, but I wouldn't call them humped.

I believe I'm chatting with the display owner right now. He was set up next to you. I know him well and see his Carbines all the time.

You know, a couple of other regulars on this site have seen his stuff too. He's about as honest as anybody I've ever dealt with when buying. One of the nicest Winchesters I've ever had came from him for a great price. He doesn't add any fake parts to his Carbines.

Looks like a nice show. Way more carbine related things than I see at mine. Most are rebuilds or humped posing as or presented as orignal.

Thanks for sharing.

A nice thing about the seller in the background, he has Carbines you're allowed to handle and once a year I find something good to buy from him.  For years the number of Carbines was dropping at shows, until he got into them. It's nice to walk into a show and get your fix. The best stuff he gets sells quickly but sometimes I'm in the right place to snag one. Nobody is going to intentionally install bayonet lugs and adjustable sights on for-sale Carbines like the 6 or so seen in the picture, so I wouldn't call them humped. Humped is selling something as original when it has faked stuff. The Saginaw on GB right now stating it's 'likely original' when it has many repop parts is humped.

I don’t claim any carbine as original. Can’t do that unless you got it from the person it was issued to. I don’t claim fake parts are real. I don’t know what you mean by “humped”, and don’t really care. I try to get reasonably priced Carbines as correct as I can as pass them on to new collectors at the best price I can. Not in it for money, I’m in it for the history and passing that history on. I point out any defects I know of and give the buyer my name, phone number and email in case they have an issue. I have integrity, and don’t talk trash about people I don’t know. I listened to you say incorrect things about Carbines for 2 days, with stories that changed depending on the audience. Might want to darken the fresh wood on the S’G’ “cartouche”...

Posting this outcome for perspective. It's pertinent to the accusations made.

As additional info, the last Carbine I was fortunate enough to pick up from GNBeret is really solid, and wasn't rebuilt. I showed it to deldriver when I got it.
