View Full Version : I got this M1 Carbine today!
Underwood M1-Carbine (http://myfilelocker.comcast.net/ripcode66/pics/m1-carbine.jpg)
Serial Number - 275XXX. Very good condition and with a nice bore.
The carbine plus all the goodies for $600.00.
I hope I did okay! :D
<-- Very jealous ;f
Nice looking carbine!
Since they don't make them any more, you did good.
Nice! I miss mine. I used to have one with a paratrooper stock. Had a KB with an old load and split the receiver. Sprayed me and three kids I had taken to the range in the face with shrapnel. Got spooked and sold it. Now wish I had just replaced the receiver. ;1
Enjoy it! They are super firearms!
Well I did'nt have it for long. ;g
I sold it off so I could buy an engagement ring for my girlfriend. (Now fiancee). ;f
The best part is she doesn't mind my gun hobby. She helped my pick out a nice gun safe and made sure it had enough room for her .35 Remington pump and Postal Meter M1 Carbine!
Sorry to hear about the loss but congratulations on the gain. Just keep the gain longer than you kept the loss!!! ;f
Besides, she would probably kill me if I tried to sell her! ;e
m1 carbine or a fiancee? hmm, it'd take me more than two weeks to make a conscious decision on that one.

Lets see. They stopped making Carbines in 1945, right? There are lots of girls willing to become brides and more coming every day. Hmmmmm, what should I do????? Actually, Fulton Armory and Auto Ordnance make new M1 Carbines, just to name a couple.
So go ahead and get married. ;)
I always wanted one of those (carbine..............not a bride)
hey sorry to hear about the loss but yes you did good as far as the weapon and all the goodies there is a gun shop near me that has a carbine (an underwood) they want $700 just for the weapon (he is high on his prices but the gun is in top shape (looks unfired) i consider myself lucky last christmas the wife got me a G-21 and for my birthday she got me a BFR in 45-70 (its sweet!!!)
over the 5 years we have been together she has added 19 weapons to my collection hope your soon to be wife is as supportive!! :)
I hate to raise a REALLY old topic, but I thought I would give an update on that M1 Carbine/Wife trade from way back in 2004.
It's coming up on our 5 year wedding anniversary for my wife and I. :cool:
I now have a real gun safe and plenty of firearms to fill it. The wife now has her own .22 handgun and rifle to go along with her M1 carbine and 35 Remington.
Her take on my gun buys... As long as the bills get paid, you can buy the toys.
She's a keeper! :supergrin:
She's a keeper! :supergrin:
I quite agree!
Now, how bout a picture of her holding or shooting the Underwood Carbine? Yeah, the carbine alone would be OK if she's shy. :)
