In my recent quest to acquire an M1, I've been looking for a deal. Sears had it for $99 but it was always out of stock until it returned back to $149. Seems like everyone had it for $130 or $149, or EBay had it for $109 at times but I tend to be hesitant about EBay and it had a high shipping rate. Anyways, I found it for $66 on the site for a large number of University's book stores. I took the chance and ordered it and it was brand new and had a $66.99 clearance sticker on it. Your mileage may vary. Brian
