Serial number on this Carbine’s Underwood – marked receiver is 26710xx, appropriate for Underwood. Barrel is marked Inland Div General Motors 9-44. Trigger group and operating handle assembly is marked SG, and rear sight is marked I.R. Co. Stock and barrel guard are walnut, and appear to be period military. This carbine is mixed, but all the parts appear to be US Military, and many were issued in mixed configuration. Note that the safety is the somewhat scarcer and generally more desirable pushbutton safety, not the lever variety.
Exposed surface areas of the metal, as the photos show, are Very Good. There is some brown spotty light pitting visible on the operating handle’s connector shaft, and considerable amounts of brown on the handle block. Sight has brown patina over substantial portions of its area, with some white on the edges; but the barrel and upper parts of the receiver are quite nice, probably 70 percent finishwise. Trigger group is also very nice, 80 percent or better. There is graying and light pitting on the lower receiver, the parts underneath the stock, that affect about 20 percent of its area. Bolt surface is dark purplish blue with about 20-25 percent white. PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR HALOGEN LIGHTS EXAGGERATE BROWN APPEARANCE TO MANY OF OUR FIREARMS.
Wood is intact, but the buttstock has hairline cracks. Right underside of stock forward of the magazine well has a hairline crack with mild separation that extends about 2-3 inches. Top side of pistol grip area behind the tang piece has a small crack that extends 1.5 inches or so, and some brass-brad repair, probably military, is visible. Note the crack on the forend just forward of the barrel band retainer clip. This one has mild separation, from the forend tip to the clip spring channel, and is visible for 2-3 inches inside the stock, as the photos show. There is also a hairline crack on the inside edge of the upper barrel guard piece, but this does not show with the rifle assembled. Stock and barrel guard are walnut, with perhaps two refinishes and extensive light to moderate pecking visible overall. We rate the wood at 50 percent or so, overall effect. We do not have a sling or oiler. Metal buttplate is genuine GI, good condition. Bore is fair to good; rifling is visible throughout, but there is a blurry, crusty appearance to the bore. Note that the barrel band and retainer are stamped out bright blue, as is the magazine, and these three parts may not be original military.
