Underwood. My favorite maker. They made typewriters and very nice looking, accurate carbines. My 2 BFP rifles are Underwood and I assume that has everything to do with my preferences.

I'd go with the Inlands. A bunch of changes to them, besides I have already got serial #'s that run from 999,453 through 6,234,036.
BTW, I think this thread IS worth reading. Hell, we talk about every damn thing else carbine !!!

Inland. For one, they are reasonably priced. Second, it isn't too hard to find them in un-humped, original 1945 configuration(bayonet lug, adj. sight, etc.), with original barrel. Third, my Rackers,(pitted barrels, worn finish, rattlers,etc.)shoot as good as carbines in near perfect condition. Last, I worked for GM almost 40 years.

I have 2 QHMC, 2 Underwoods, 3 Saginaw S'G', and 4 Inlands (3 in folding stocks), and a few other manufacturere, one each.
Looking at my list, I guess I'd have to choose Inland, due to the paratrooper thing.
But truly, the QHMC are both pristine, and will be here 'indefinitely'.

This is a tough one. I would say Irwin Pederson! lol JK its a pain just to get one of them!

I'd go with National Postal Meter. It was my first Carbine and as someone else posted they did the best at the Military Testing.
