Let's see...

"Real" carbines from the CMP are sixty years old and the barrels and other parts have considerable wear, not to mention the fact that they're a mix of US and foreign parts and may have been refinished while overseas.

The AO carbine is brand new. The barrel is new. And if you ding it out in the woods, not a big deal--you didn't damage something that was allegedly historic (even though the typical CMP carbine isn't very collectible to a serious collector.)

ALL will go up in value as time passes. Quality firearms always appreciate.

I have several USGI carbines, but if I was looking for a nice shooter to last me a few more decades of serius use, I know which one I'd be choosing.
