Not sure what I have? So far this is what I have found.
Barrel does have a stamp. I think its a proof mark? Also noticed the alignment marks at barrel to reciever bottom are on both and aligned.

Reciever - Quality Hardware 187xxxx
Barrel -UNDERWOOD 2-44 Flaming bomb, Stamp - looks like a P with a R below down near bayonet lug.
barrel band - K1
Hand guard -RMC
Safty -E.I.
Mag reliese - M & WA
Rear adjustible sight - J.A.O
Cannot find anything on the stock.

Will try posting some pic soon.

Your QH would be in the beginning of the first block of QH assigned serial numbers. The carbine has been through a typical rebuild post war and that is when the barrel was changed and the rest of it was updated with all the latest parts.

Thanks Tuna!! Is this a decent one to collect? It is in great condition. I think I paid to much so it will stay in the collection. It also has ammo pouch that says AVERY 1943 I dont think its a repo.
