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.
