    It's not exactly a C&R, but thought someone here might know about them.

    Saw one in a pawn shop window today. I know they are a post war knock off of the real thing. What are they worth these days and are they any good?

    They had $225 on the price tag. Didn't have time to talk to them about it as I was on my way back to jury duty after lunch.

    The Universals are a pretty nice little carbine in their own - but very few parts (other than magazines) interchange with the military carbines. I have had a few pass through my collection over the years. Fine little shooters. $225 is not a bad price if it is in very good or better condition.

    Welcome Mustang.....welcome to TFF.

    I recommend that you not carry a Carbine into the jury box. The defense counsel might get his undies in a bunch!

    Xracer,

    Heck, my undies would have been in a bunch when I ended up in the seven floor jail.

    I've always fancied one in .256 magnum; but they aren't very common.......

    If that's a standard grade Universal Carbine, the price is high.

    80% = $150
    90% = 160
    95% = 170

    Here in the southwest (Arizona, Nevada, California) a Universal or Iver Johnson carbine in minty condition brings $325. Even beat up ones go for $275.
