I'm told it's rare and valuable, is it?
The letter after the "M" is "C", "Q-RMC".

All of Quality Hardware's stocks came from Rockola and were marked either "RMC" (very early, and not to be confused with some late war cherry stocks, also marked "RMC") or "Q-RMC". Quality produced just shy of 360,000 carbines, placing them in the middle on the scarcity scale. Rarity and value are subjective terms. Many factors determine value, the most important being condition of the stock.
