Selling my Underwood M1 Carbine that I bought from the CMP in 9/2007. Serial number range is 6,101,XXX. It's part of the Italian returns with a FAT stamp on the stock. It's a service grade. According to my Stone Axe gauge, the ME is just shy of 1. I don't have a gauge to measure TE.
It has been disassembled, cleaned, metal parts oiled, operating rod spring greased, and moving metal parts greased.
Several coats of boiled linseed oil and tung oil have been applied to the wood. It was then reassembled and one 15 round magazine fired through it for function. Cleaned again, and its been sitting in the safe ever since.
(I decided to disassemble the carbine and take more pictures showing the different parts.)
It will come with the CMP certificate, box, hang tag, and manuals that came with it. I will carefully mark out my name with a permanent marker on the certificate, please be aware of this.

Price is $1045***SPF*** which includes shipping, insurance, and adult signature requirement via FedEx to your FFL. I will only ship to states where the carbine is legal and no "red tape" is involved. Your FFL must accept from a non-FFL or extra shipping will be added.
Payment by USPS Money Order is preferred, but will consider other forms of payment. First unconditional "I'll take it" posted followed up with an e-mail/PM gets it. I will also check the time stamp.
Any questions ask, I'll do my best to answer them.
Thanks for looking.
