Some years ago, I was heavily involved in CMP vintage rifle competition. After buying, and competing with, CMP M-1 carbines, I decided I needed one that I could shoot "offhand" (Standing Slow Fire) in my back yard for practice. I was able to get Criterion to make a milspec carbine barrel minus the gas port. When this was assembled in a rifle, I had what amounted to a bolt-action carbine. With this, I could shoot bunny loads of Hornady swaged .310 lead balls over a couple of grains of Bullseye. AND, I could hang onto the brass. Unfortunately, after a fun year of that, I moved and got out of carbine competition.
I'd now like to sell that Criterion milspec carbine barrel (still without a gas port, though one could easily be drilled). The barrel has shot soft lead balls exclusively and is in like new condition. I figure $75 plus postage would be a reasonable asking price. Anyone want it?
