    Barrel is 12-43. The U is not stamped in Underwood. Rifle was covered in dried grease when I got it.

    The barrel on my 2.7M is stamped 11-43. I thought maybe it had been changed, but sounds about right when comparing with Jangle's s/n. - Bob

    I found this 2.6 Underwood a couple of years ago at my local gun shop. It had been on the rack there for several years. When I took it apart to clean it, dead bugs fell out. Somebody had also coated it with BLOicon several times. It has now been thoroughly cleaned but not refinished (raw linseed oilicon for the stock). The Underwood barrel has the 2/44 date on it and the receiver has the lightly struck flaming bomb with the "B" stamped over it. It appears that it somehow escaped the post-WW2 refurbishment and still retains the flip sight, flat bolt, push-button safety and type I barrel band. The best part is the gun functions perfectly and is really fun to shoot!

    I have a 235XXXX T code Underwood with the same small punch stake marks on the flip sight. They even caught part of the flip base when it was staked.

    Here's a picture of a 2.37M T Code showing "smaller" stake marks, but not certain of the originality. - Bob

    Nice example of chisel staking.
    When they tell you to behave, they always forget to specify whether to behave well or badly!

    I'm getting away from Underwoods a bit, but here's the rear sight staking on my 1.8M S'G'. Someone "drifted" it a bit to the left, but it shoots good with it there. The base is marked B-IP, but I believe it to be the original. - Bob

    That looks consistent in finish and wear to me too.

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