    Does anyone have an opinion of the meaning of the number "41" stamp just forward of the slide stop "button"?

    I don't think this gun was a Lend Lease because the serial number on the frame shows it was made in 1918. Much too early for Lend Lease which came about in the early days of WWII.

    AND the CMP 1911...

    I turned out to be one of the lucky ones with an RNG of 8005 — which initially made me believe I was not going to get a 1911 this go around. AND CMP informed me at the time I got my RNG that I would...

    I'm pretty sure Angus Starling (the religious Scotsman) in The Ghost And The Darkness was carrying a Martini Henry when he was killed by the lion.

    Maybe that is because so many of us had lots of questions that we asked and were answered over there.

    Now because of that we have fewer questions to ask...for the moment at least.

    Waaaay COOL! We cannot have too many of these aircraft.

    Perhaps the closest the US came to having a comparable aircraft would be the B-25 Mitchell?

    I do know there were variants that mounted...

    Absolutely true. The M1 Carbine Forum was my Go To place when I first got my Underwood M1 carbine from the CMP. Almost everything I know about it was learned from the great people at that site.

    Thanks, but I'm not looking to buy a replacement.

    My question is just for the history of the rifle. All the wood on my rifle is fine.
