Well I get to post two things this month. It has been a good December so I don't have a pic of item one. But it is a 3" S&W 1911 pro the little bastard is an amazing firearm. Now I guess it is on to the more important of the two (well at least to my girlfriend asking her tomorrow)

IBM M1 Carbine. Parkerized refurb with peep rear sight, lever safety, and bayonet mount. Serial number dates this piece to March of 1944. AO subcontract receiver, HI rear sight, MMQ front band, SW magazine, sling, oiler, and 12-20-1950 dated pouch. Unmarked refinished stock. IBM barrel is very good. I've mounted the pouch to the sling for now. Blue Sky import.

I work for IBM and in the lobby of the headquarters in NY along with a display of various computers they have one of these. Kind of freaks out some who did not realize IBM ever made a firearm.

Got to put some rounds out of it today. One problem; the rear sight mount drifts out of position - I'll have to get it repeened. 50 yards, standing, hasty sling.

So this thread is obviously 10 years old and obsolete. Most of the picture links are broken. But I wonder how many of us still have the guns/things listed here after this amount of time? Is the poster's puppy still alive? Is the poster who got the ring and was proposing did get/still married? I no longer have that particular NPM M1 carbine, but I do have another one.

Struck me as an interesting thought, that's all.
