Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Recently picked up two carbines for dang good prices. This one is a singer made for Underwood. ImageImageImage

Nice!

I always dismissed them ... due to the rather anemic loading, but was just reading up recently on the excellent terminal performance of the Hornady Critical Defense loading for the M1 Carbine. I bet my Uncle sure wishes he had had some when he was at Chosin!

Very nice indeed. They look to be in great shape.
I hold a Carbine Match once a year out to 300 yards. The bullet is still very accurate at that distance ( shot out M2 barrels are not of course). While the bullets energy at that distance will not dent the steel target, it does still fragment into pieces leaving little behind.

That's actually photos of just one of em.
The other one is an Underwood that was more updated later down the line.

This singer/Underwood only got the updated milled rear sight. Everything else is how it was during Wwii (to my uneducated self)

My other Underwood has the stamped rear sight, bayonet lug, and mag catch of the later era.

It's still at the gunshop awaiting for its final payment in layaway. :(
I bought two of em at once at my cash flow isn't what it used to be, but I couldn't say no for the price. Lol.

When in doubt.... FIX BAYONETS
