I owned a Blue Sky Quality Hardware and had no complaints. The rifles got a bad rap, but I agree the import mark isn't nearly as horrible as the dot matrixes companies like CAI use now.

Id buy one for a shooter or swap barrels. M1 carbine barrels are still fairly cheap and easy to find and easy to change. I agree the "rumors" of hard stamping to compress the bore are probably myth.

Depending on the condition/features that's not out of market for a Rockola. They are some of the most expensive. Presuming its GI Rockola and not "repop" Rockola (aka James River Armory) and inland (rebooted not sure who is backing it). I suspect these are not bad guns but with reasonably priced originals still on the market I would go USGI.
