My 1st Carbine

I have an Underwood Ser No. 61036xx. Barrel is Underwood dated 2-44.It is a re-import mix-master in very good shape. It has a U stamped into the pistol grip along with the original P proof, Inland cartouche partly visible. Most parts are Inland including the Type III stock.with the following exceptions: Winchester Type IV Slide, Rock-Ola Type II Trigger housing, Rock-Ola Type III Hammer marked I.K.and a Type III barrel band marked EM-Q. I was thinking about returning to the original config if I could figure out what that was. Stock has two sets of serial numbers stamped into it One being what looks to be an early Inland Number (partially obliterated) and the current number of the receiver. Per Reich's book it looks to be a former IDF weapon. Any help, suggestions or parts trades would be appreciated. I hope the picture comes out okay as I have more of every piece of the rifle.

Beautiful rifle and a nice pic. I can't give you much technical advice (but you'll find many here who can).

Also, welcome aboard.

VERY nice, I just love the little Carbine. Fell in love with it the first time I saw it. It was at the end of "The Bridges of Toko-Ri" when William Holden and Mickey Rooney (Brubaker and Forney) were shot down and hand to defend themselves in a trench. That was the first time I ever saw a Carbine and I was just fascinated with the slick little rifle. I got one when I was 20 years old and that same rifle is in my collection. Shooting a carbine is about as much fun as anyone can have with their clothes on.

Thanks to all

I would guess that amongst the membership of this group someone will have some sage advice. I have liked this gun ever since i was young. (Combat, The Gallant Men, etc.) and although my dad never said much, I found a picture of him with his carbine in England prior to D-Day (29th Infantry). I even ran into these (M2 variety) in our ships armory along with Garands, Thompsons, Grease guns, BAR's while on gunfire support duty Vietnam 68-69.I'll follow with more photos now that I know I can do that successfully
