is 700.00 a good price for a underwood carbine? it fat 77 cartouche on stock, and 43 flaming bomb on barrel. it has been refinished to a dark parkerize, and stock looks to be redone.

that dark park makes me think of an import from Italy. I had a STD PRO that was a very dark park like that. Again, like the Inland you are asking about, $700 is not bad but depends on condition, etc. You won't find them for much less for sure.

FAT 77 is "Fabbrica d'Armi a Terni" 1977. It shows that the carbine was rebuilt by the Italian's arsenal in 1977. There is likely another FAT stamp on top of the barrel near the receiver. This is NOT an import stamp and does not lessen it's value. This is an arsenal rebuild stamp. The dark park is typical of the FAT rebuild. The flaming bomb is typical of Underwood barrels.

Yup as Jack said brought in from Italy by CMP and sold to members. They took pretty good care of our War baby's.

Here's one on GB that sounds the same only it's Buy-It-Now price is $800 (Underwood FAT 77 w/flaming bomb and refinished stock). The only thing I would be concerned about is the condition of the bore and whether or not it is import marked. If I were buying it I would ask the seller about that. Also, there is the additional cost of shipping and FFL transfer fees (maybe another $50 to my New Mexico location). Possibly it also includes the sling and magazine (not noted in the description). If not, that's another $30.

It would be better if you could personally inspect the carbine before laying down the cash. Just my opinion.

that's the one I am asking about. he checked the m e and said there is more than 1/8 visible when inserting a .30-06 round. also, no import marks. probably 45.00 total to ship and pay ffl fee, so total for gun would be 745.00 does this sound good? I wont be able to visually inspect though. also have a local gun show this weekend, and am going to check there. thanks for all the help.

I'd pay that for a FAT Underwood. Looks like you have a lot of options. Good luck!
