Fulton Armory Offering 5.7mm Carbines
Fulton Armory had
annouced that they are offering the M1 Carbine chambered in 5.7mm Spitfire
with a new Fulton Armory barrel. Barrels were listed at $169, complete
carbines in this chambering for $1099.95.
Update: October 29, 2005
We were recently advised by Fulton Armory that they are currently unable
to obtain M1 Carbine receiver cores
in order to manufacture any more military versions of
their new M1 Carbines and 5.7 Johnson Spitfires. However, for
those of you more interested in conversions,
they have an excellent price on their website pages
for 5.7 barrels which include the gas port housing. And as near
as I can tell, there has been more interest
shown in conversions than with brand new .30 M1 or 5.7 Carbines
selling for over $1000 each.
