Got a carbine in April, 2012, before CT. Not going to shoot it, it's NIB. Wanted to trade it, but can't find a reasonable offer. Paid $1299, Cabelas won't give me $900 on a trade. Thinking about giving to WVSP, my home state police. If I'm going to take that bad of a beating, I'd rather give it away. Ain't no joke!
