Serial numbers 4010000-4074999 began in July 1943 with an interuption approx October thru December of that year and completed in Feb 44. Production then began on the 2.3 - 2.9 series (which includes mine, btw) and was concluded in April '44.

Info from M1 Carbine Owners Guide by Larry Ruth with Scott Duff.

I saw an underwood with a British proofed barrel the other week for $700. If I had that kind of money, I mighta snapped it up. Or if it was cheaper. Good find though. How about a string of pictures?

Please remember, those BNP proofs do not make it lend-lease. They are simply British export proofs. If you know the codes, you can deptermine the proof dates. Most are from the 19502 through the early 60s. A real Lend-Lease will have the British Broad Arrow on it. That means it was accepted for service. In my entire time collecting, I've seen a total of one such marking! And that guy wouldn't sell!
