It got here yesterday. Took about a month from when I sent in the paper work. I field stripped it and it was extremely clean. Its a National Postal Meter. Serial 1955*** The paper tag that was on the carbine said it has a Marlin Barrel, and it says Marlin on it, no date though and the barrel looks brand new! Shiny Bore!! The bolt has no markings at all. Stock has a Fat 70 on it. So its Italian. The trigger group says "Inland" on it. Has Bayonet lug and the post war sights "SA" marked. Well here are the pictures:

NPM, serial #1955*** was made in late october, 1943.

Is that a racker? If it is that looks really good. Congrats.

Cool shooter man, I have 3 of them from the CMP, was hoping for one of them to have the "Fat" stamp on it but none did. I'd have to double check mine to be sure but I believe I have a Rock-ola, a National Postal Meter, and I think a Quality Hardware. Great little guns, I would love to own one of the Bavarian Rural Police models as well.

Where did you get the info? I looked all over the net and found nothing.

Yes its a Rack Grade. Better condition then I expected it to be in.

I want to order more! lol.

For whatever reason, photobucket doesn't want to work for me right now. I'll post up the charts I have later.

I'm hopefully going to the range this weekend! I'm so excited! I've always loved the Carbine and wanted one for as long as I can remember!

Ok so I noticed the CMP is out of the Oilers for the Carbines, but they have slings, but I did some google searching and could not find what I was looking for, but does anyone know where the best place to get an Oiler and sling are, I'm not looking for repro unless thats what I have to get, I got the 10 Round Mag in yesterday so I'm going to hopefully take it to the range this weekend and tell you guys/gals the range report.

-Thanks.

Thanks!

Looks like both my carbines are from late 43 (possibly Jan 44 for the Underwood).

- I have an NPM that I recently purchased from another CalGunner. sn 1973xxx

Thanks for the charts and thanks for the link milsurp. I'll check it out when I get on my computer.

I can't seem to find mag pouches on that site, where is a good place to get them?

-Thanks.

My newly arrived CMP Underwood:

And my previously acquired NPM (I bought a surplus Italian stock that matched better. The stock that was on the carbine when I got it is also in the picture).

Very nice Carbines. I want to order another! I want to order a Garand too, but I don't no which to pick. haha. Hopefully they will still have some available in a month and half.

Where did you get the mag pouch at?

I want to take the post war bayonet lug and rear sight off of mine.

As much as they are derided for being anti-CA, and a companmy that isn't nearly as good as it used to be, I got the repro pouch, sling, and oiler - as well as the spare Italian Walnut stock, from CTD.

Now I need to get another sling and oiler (ordered two pouches, but only one sling and oiler - what was I thinking?)..

NaughtyMonkey

No idea lol.

I just checked my mail and got a new magazine from Cheaper then dirt and in about the middle there is a huge page with all sorts of Carbine related stuff. Oiler, sling, pouch. Coincidence???

The Type 3 barrel band and adjustable rear sight are superior to the earlier band and sight for shooting purposes.

The Type 3 band provides more stability of the action and stock relationship. Most Type 1 bands are fake or very expensive if real and are too narrow to provide stability (that's why they switched to the wider Type 2 band). Changing the front band requires removing and replacing the front sight, which requires specific tools to do a non-Bubba job.

If the barrel has had a Type 3 band on it for a while it will have an obvious color difference between the exposed part of the barrel and the part that was under the sleeve part of the Type 3 band, called a barrel shadow. It makes it obvious that there was a Type 3 on the barrel after the Type 1 band is installed.

Most flip sights are fake or are even more expensive than the Type 1 band if real. Again, removing the adjustable sight and installing the flip sight requires yet another special tool to avoid Mr. Bubba. If you damage the dovetail while removing or installing the rear sight the carbine is rendered unusable. Adjusting for the flip sight windage requires drifting the sight in the dovetail vs. simply turning a knob with the adjustable type. The flip sight has only 2 distance settings vs. 5 for the adjustable sight.

Yeah I no all about that, I want to take it to WW2 reenactments and it can't have post war features. They may let it slide but I doubt it. I am worried about breaking the dove tail. etc.

The adjustable rear sight was introduced during World War II. Late war production carbines were fitted with the adjustable sight and some were installed in the field. This is my original late World War II Inland with a milled adjustable rear sight and Type 2 barrel band.

This is a picture from very late in World War II showing a B-29 that crash landed near Iwo Jima. The carbine has a Type 3 barrel band.

Very true but it depends on the date of the battle ETC, we use different gear in different periods of war as it came out etc. I guess it is what it is.

But thanks. I think I'll just leave it how it is, or hell I don't no.

They have Rack Grades: UNDERWOOD, and NATIONAL POSTAL METERS,

Also have some on there auction site: http://auction.odcmp.com/auctions/index.asp


But there stuff at Auction, in my opinion, gets where its WAY over priced.

I finally got to take it to the range, shot 50 RDS no problems at all. Very accurate rifle. Surprised me on how accurate it was. I love it. :)
