If it's a pet, tell us a story. If it's for sale, post in the appropriate place, following the forum rules...

I have read that it's virtually impossible to find a WW II era M1C that hasn't been rebuilt. Wonder how this one survived?

Mine survived because my father brought it home with him. :)

"...Wonder how this one survived?..." Most likely made that way by somebody with lots of time and money.
"...brought it home with him..." It's a good thing nobody is looking for government property stolen that long ago. The troopies were not allowed to keep their issue firearms.

Maybe not, but a lot of 'em did and nobody really cared. My ex father-in-law brought back his 1911 (we shot the 1945 issued ammo that was in it in 1975. It all worked perfectly, as did the mags that had been loaded since then.).

Another friend of mine showed me the M1 Carbine that he brought back with him when they pulled him off a South Pacific island and sent him to the Naval Academy.

(RIP, Pinky and Dick and Semper Fi)

It just wasn't that big of a deal. Vietnam changed that, because the issue guns (M14, M16) were both select fire. However, I have no doubt that some enterprising GI's managed to do it anyway.

Yeah they did. All sorts of family members who brought stuff back.

One family members father, who was a fireman on the home front in WW-II, was issued an Eddydstone 1917 06 as part of Coastal Watch. They never asked for it back. He still has it as issued :)

The stuff is out there - just very scarce!

years ago I was shown a carbine that was "assembled at Ft. Ord Calif. by a woman staffed assembly line" during 1944 . It was new, it was a mix master and it was an M-2 paratroop version ! The old boy who had it got it from his deceased wife who worked the assembly line, it was a 'lunch box special' . I wonder who has it now?

I saw an all-original Underwood in a local gun shop a couple years ago, priced at $900. I held it in my hands and looked it over, sure looked authentic to me. Was short on time so I didn't jump on it, and it was gone when I came back with cash. But I would have bet it was a duffle bag gun that a vet brought home, and his heirs took to the gun store and sold for cheap. Still had the type 1 barrel band, flip site, and highwood stock.
