Default Finally got my first carbine!

I found this gem on another forum. Once I got it home I detail cleaned it and took pictures of all the markings I could find. Seems to be in great shape minus the stock that has some pretty significant wear right where the sling snap lives.

Nice Underwood/B. For people collecting the Underwood subcontractors, the 'B' code is very desirable.

Congratulations, be careful though. I started with one... I’m at ten and holding.....


To elaborate on 6Ring's post above, the "B"-code on the heel of the receiver signifies Bridgeport which is the subcontractor code for Singer Manufacturing Company (the sewing machine company). So your receiver was subcontracted by Underwood to Singer.

Nice rifle, I think I looked at that exact rifle shortly after the gentlemen posted the ad for the rifle arfcom. I thought it looked like a good buy, and what I thought was unique about has already been pointed out above. Congrats on your new rifle!
