I have never seen one till today. A little research says they may have been trying to cash in on the popularity of the M1 30 carbine. They are kind of cool looking.
I will make an offer on it tomorrow. Does anyone here have one? What do you think of it? What are they worth.
Thanks

Cowboycopus - I assume you are talking about the 99M1, a short 9 shot tube fed semi-auto. If so I had one back in the early 70s. A very quick handling, slick semi auto. My only complaint was being slow to reload. I made a mistake and trade mine in on a Ruger 10-22 where I could carry a couple of extra loaded magazines in my hunting jacket. Most of the M-1's I have seen lately are missing the rear sight, which is quite rare and expensive when you find them. Most guys mount a scope on the rifle and take the rear sight off. Nice find and hope they don't want too much for it. Locally they bring $140-$175 in good condition with sights. As you know the value varies depending on where you live. Good luck, it is a slick, quick handling little rifle. Shenandoah

I've actually heard of people who only get on the net once or twice each month.

Golphin - Thanks for the additional information about the 99M2, magazine fed 22 version. I can't say I ever remember seeing one, and darn few 99M1's. IF extra magazines were to be had it would make a real nice hunting rig.
Hill Country Shooter - Nice picture, your rig looks like mine did, right down to the canvas sling. First thing I thought of was making the frame thick enough to cover with a piece of glass, then adding a sign, "In Case Of Emergency, Break Glass".
