I was looking for the last piece of my 10 piece carbine puzzle, an SG. Surfing Gunbroker I saw one for sale by Gander Mountain. Now we have all seen those wonderful carbines from Gander in the $1800-$3000 range but this one had a starting bid of $699? Only bad thing it said about it was the stock had been cracked and repaired. Looking at the pics I could see the piece broken out by the recoil pad on the Underwood M-U T2 high wood stock (hand guard is 2 rivet MU also). I kept looking at the pics of the carbine trying to find out what was wrong with it. Besides the stock I could not see any problems with the limited pictures they posted so I went ahead and bid. It was a heated auction that ended up a whopping $32 over opening bid, so I got it for $731. Received it today, the repaired piece of the stock came off in my hand, repaired with air glue no doubt but I am happy about that as I will contact Frank Derrico about having him repair it but I have other stocks for it so that is no big deal for me. I cannot find anything wrong with this carbine!!. Bore is shinny as a new dime, MW looks ok (see 30.06 round), no import mark, it needed a lot of dried cosmo removed. It even came with a Bren-Dan bayo and a M8A1 scabbard and a genuine Chinese Walmart quality repro sling and oilier.

more pics of the sling well, looks like a strong M and a weak -U. So have to wonder original or being Gander has lots of "correct" carbines was this stock messed with????

Nice pick up. How badly staked is the rear sight? You will need an RSG 75 or so marked type 2 stock......If your going to restore it. Won't need much if you can for sure. The SG carbines are on the hard side to find so you did good.

Rear sight does have at least one noticeable stake mark so will leave an adj sight on it (probably change to a T2 as I prefer them). No T3 BB shadow however so it is tempting....I do have a RSG stock on my S'G' I will change it over to when I find a good stock for the S'G'.

Cali,

Since you have other options for a stock on you're tremendous find, would you consider selling the damaged stock as is?

(of course with the broken piece)

It would save you the cost of the repair job, and I'm kind of looking for an M-U stock for one of my Underwoods.
