    I own a Saginaw Steering Gear M-1 cal. Carbine with a Underwood Flaming Bomb Barrel but with no date. The reciever Ser# places it late 42, early 43 Manufacture. It's a a Non Import. It's a great shooter.

    Here is one of my Underwoods, all correct, non-import marked, barrel gauges under .1.
    98% Original finish with a "rare" B marked receiver = (made for Underwood by Singer.)
    I also have 23 NIW matching Standard Products marked GI contract, 30rd mags for her.

    She's a pretty girl!

    Okay question how many got sold or gave to Korea?,And got brought back by importers
    The reason i like to know is I got a underwood receiver and barrel says underwood 2 44 flaming bomb ,but its got the stock with the slot for the selector on the left side,round bolt like a M2 and a believe the mag catch was changed because a 30 round mag works .It has blue sky arlington va. on the barrel. Just curious i don't collect it's a shooter and gets carried in my jeep ,because i can get it in to play quicker,than the M1a i carry,come to think of it i think i need a stryker

    Yeah, I did not include them, since their contract was pulled. I do have a a Saginaw receiver made by them early on.
