My Underwood is a "B" coded (Singer sub-contracted) receiver with post war upgrades. Was used in Israel as a Mash Az Civil Guard rifle, then re-imported into country.







I wanted to take off my original cartouched NPM stock in a gun sock in the safe, and keep it in great shape, since I use the Underwood as a house/farm gun and shooter, and I plan on shooting it in some 100 yard matches in the spring. I prefer the feel of the pot belly type V stocks for shooting, anyway. I finally got a SA pot belly mounted on my Underwood.

Saginaw79;

How do you like that perforated metal hand guard? I received one of those on the commercial IAI I bought about 9 yrs ago. I took mine off because it fit too loose and would always rattle when I fired it or moved it. I bought a replacement stock set, returned from Isreal like the one imarangemaster shows in his pic, at a local gun show and put that on my IAI. It now has a much tighter lock up.



Regards.
Stan

It is not too hard to tighten the metal handguard so it doesn't rattle. I had one for awhile on a Blue Sky Inland that I used as a LEO trunk gun. I had to bed up the corners of the front and rear tabs that engage the receiver and the barrel band. After that, zero rattle. It does work well at dissipating heat better than GI. I am just traditional, though, and prefer the mil-spec wood (especially type V pot bellies!)

Picked this Saginaw up today, its a Century import from SOG. Was filthy and nasty but cleaned up nice.
Stock is a Underwood with GHD barely visible and AAM also, Handguard is RSG.
Barrel is Saginaw, bolt is SG, slide is PI, trigger housing is Inland. Mag is KSG.

Inland DIV. M1, serial # 4995186, late type stamped adjustable rear sight, barrel is an Inland MFG General Motors dated 1-44, second type barrel band marked JM, switch type safety, late type M - marked mag release.


The Manufacturer mark for the stock in the sling well is either IO or OI, anyhow correct stock for an Inland, made by S.E. Overton, South Haven, MI.


P proofmark


Crossed cannon cartouche, it's hard to see but it's there!



My best guess would be that this is an inspection mark, I'm not sure though!



The oiler is an original marked SI, the mag pouch also, made by D.M. SHOE CO., marked 1943. The sling is a repro though.

Saginaw M1 Carbine.This is a battle field pickup Saginaw M1 that seems to have been rebuilt in the end of 1944, in one of the rear area armouries in Belgium. The previous owner, clearly a heathen, threw away the original stock and put on a repro M1A. I will have to drive to Belgium one of these days and buy a decent replacemnet stock.Good thing is that I got it dirt cheap because the stock was not original.

I got another M1 today, an Underwood. It's another battlefield leftover mixmaster.




Serial# 2463788 with flip sight.




Early type operating slide but a "new manufacture" bolt. Two rivet handguard.




Uncheckered push type safety, marked "EW" and old type "short face" magazine catch.




Underwood barrel marked 3-44.




The stock is a potbelly, low-wood. I only found the IO/OI marking in the slingwell which makes it a S.E. Overton South Haven, MI stock, those were only fitted to Inland carbines. I guess it is a replacement stock.




And the crossed canons eskucheon. No inspectors stamp and no P.



It came with a smaller friend;-)


This seems to be a "mixmaster", the slide is a Colt but the serial # 857694and the FJA = Frank J. Atwood, inspectors mark make the receiver an Ithaca.

These photos will make you cry!

I came across this Paratroop Winchester M2(?) that was being used in a horse farm as a single shot rifle for the lack of a magazine. The carbine was mud encrusted and upon removal of the crud, some rust was evident. The pistolized butt has seen better times and the pistol grip shows a wide gap with the rest of the stock. The wire stock has no leather cheekpiece and does not lock in the extended position properly since only a small effort will make it collapse.

After a week of immersing the hardware in a mixture of diesel and kerosene and removing the mud and rust with a bronze brush and a used tooth brush, I test fired the carbine with a 30-round magazine, the carbine worked flawlessly in semi and full auto mode.

I do not know if the unit is an original M2 since it has the selector for semi and full auto while having a folding stock and a barrel band with bayonet lug.

Here are some pictures.
