m1 carbines havent been available forever since there were not many left in teh stock pile to begin with. What wasnt sold off as surplus post war was given away to our allies, which we never got back.

Prime recipiants were South Vietnam, Souh Korea, and Cuba prior to Castro

Same with alot of Garands we gave to Iran.

If you do get an 03 make sure it is not too early of one. There are some that are not safe to shoot due to the poor heat treatment of the reciever. Too brittle to handle modern 30-06 loadings.
