Underwood year of manufacture ?
 
I have an Underwood carbine serial# 40623xx with the barrel dated 9-43.
What I'm trying to find is a list that shows approx. dates of manufacture for serial number blocks.I just got the Riesch book thinking it would have this but it doesn't show dates for the serial numbers.
Is there a list or could someone tell me the year this carbine was made?
Thanks

The 'date listing' is in the Ruth & Duff 'M1 Carbine Owner's Guide' book. Your Carbine was made about September-October, 1943. The date of manufacture corresonds quite closely to the date of barrel manufacture.

I'll have to get that book too,looks like the carbines can be as addicting as my other habits,Garands and M1911A1's.
