    That looks consistent in finish and wear to me too.

    Here's a Line out to U and it's staking.

    It's important that we say we know they're marked, but obviously that message isn't for us. There's a bigger picture. Sunray isn't being beaten up, I was hoping he'd engage in the discussion.

    I'd think chances would be good for getting the front sight back first.

    Weird things happen. Items turn up later when you think it's over and done. I dropped out of bidding on a LeMans once at...

    Sunray must know it's an erroneous statement that they weren't marked since he hasn't substantiated his statement?

    Of the tiny percentage of unmarked parts, many have assembly queues that ID which...

    Front sight ears were trimmed and the rear sight was Vee notched on one aperture.

    Maybe ask the seller to contact the buyer to about an offer?

    Thanks Bill.

    The statement was that "Most parts...are unmarked." False. And the question was presented to Sunray to quantify.

    Almost all Carbine parts are marked, as mandated by ordnance. What's the purpose of saying marked parts aren't marked?

    Be careful. That site works fairly well for many serials, but I just tried it with a 4.4 mil NPM. It's totally wrong. It's like Reisch and you will mess up an honest Carbine.

    Ever seen this Underwood E263 before?

    Hasn't this been seen a few times in recent years? Think it's a real sale or scam?

    I remember previously seeing 4 of those names now, but none are anywhere within that shilled up price range.

    About Sunray, can we all agree that he is serial trolling the Milsurps site? There isn't a Carbine collector who supports his flawed opinion.

    Most people probably never knew how to ascertain real and fake. Collectors and accumulators will buy the repop parts. I'm not so hot on mag catches, safeties and bands and wouldn't buy a new repop...

    Ever seen one of these stamps before?

    This is on a pristine Carbine and the info given is that servicemen were given a stamp they used on clothes so they could be identified during & after laundering? Was that an occurrence?
