    If there's a question whether an SG barrel is the original one just post a picture of the barrel proof P. An SG barrel proof is pretty distinctive in it's size and shape versus an S'G' proof.

    A few things to consider or look for if you're still interested:

    1. There's a low chance of having an S and T code Underwood in the same location at the same time, unrestored or not. Try and...

    It was listed for a bit over 2k. I would have liked to have had it, but I really want an earlier QHMC and not a later one such as this. Still, this particular example was pretty nice and didn't...

    The rear sight could have been restaked at a later date, that would explain the divot patterns. Also, original sights were not always staked the way some newsletter, book or online site says they...

    Allegedly, he was involved in full auto manufacture and the manufacturing of ghost guns... I emphasize allegedly.

    I'm sure it will sell briskly, but unless I find out it has a ton of never heard of information in it, I'll pass, at least for the foreseeable future.

    Depressingly, I can envision someone changing the barrel and any other items needed and try to foist it upon an unsuspecting carbine public. It wouldn't go totally incognito, but most potential...

    I remembered when this subject came up that some very late Winchester carbines, that appeared otherwise original, came with rotary safeties without the "normal" E.W marking on them. One of the rotary...

    Inland sent slides to IBM in the Fall of 43 so perhaps that explains the presence of the PI marked slide. Also, I find the rear sight very interesting. The base is forward, but the aperture is facing...

    When I saw the smaller cartouche I thought it was too early also, although there could be an unknown explanation out there for it. Also, for some reason that dogleg just stands out too much versus...

    The R-O firing pins were integrated to Quality from Rock-ola. It wasn't necessarily whole lot (2500) so only occasional sightings should be the norm.

    I could never get the picture clarity I wanted, but if that is a rotary safety then it appears to be in a non-firing safe position.

    Also, Iv'e seen the first picture before, but not the second to...

    I'd like to say that it's tastefully done as some sporterized carbines I've seen have been, but this one is definitely not. I guess it boils down to a different era of collecting the M1 carbine and...

    I may be wrong, but the barrel looks like it has a swaged on gas cylinder. If it does, that really narrows down who made it to the small handful of companies that swaged their gas cylinders on. In...

    It's definitely a Winchester trigger housing, just based on the number stamped on the bottom of the housing in my opinion. Plus, as noted there's definitely a W on the right side at the back,...

    While I agree the pictures aren't the best, I still can see enough details to pretty much know what I'd be getting. Also, I don't think the seller ever said it was original either, he just used the...

    The thing being sanded probably explains the lack of cartouche. The large box UEF stamp (with or without CC) had pretty thin lines and I bet was susceptible to be sanded.

    Yes, it sounds like the seller ended it himself. One of the choices eBay gives you when an auction is ended early is there was an error in the listing. Btw, I seriously doubt it will return, not on...

    By this time I doubt Inland was shipping barrels to anyone else since only them and Winchester were still producing carbines, of any volume that is.
