The phenomenon of which you speak is called the economy and the great prices these carbines currently fetch, bringing them out of the cabinet. This will last for a short time,, and then they will dry up for a considerable time period.

Yep, akb, just the same as a lot of Military Rifles and Carbines are doing today. I just did two days ago the same with a non-refurb Russian 1954 Izhevsk SKS. The prices are so high right now that I was able to take a very hefty profit on a Carbine I only owned for 1 year! Being retired, I could not pass up the opportunity to do so. Money talks and BS walks many times.

No need to wait.

It is already here in the black gun world.

I asked Microbest (the company that builds just about everyone's bolts for the AR-15, M-16, M-4, etc.) what the lead time was on bolts. I was told mid-2013.

Current manufacturers like LMT and Larue are already 4-6 months back-ordered, by their own admission. And they are inclined to be rather optimistic, I have noted in the past.

Ammo is being hit, too. ASYM, our source for precision ammo for testing, simply can't get components. Prices are climbing like ... 2008?!?
