I guess some sears did not need adjustment?

Maybe this is one of those things where an adjusted and then hand-etched/engraved *U* sear was only an early thing in Underwoods, but just because it does not have one really doesn’t mean anything?

Also, maybe they later realized that it was not necessary to adjust (made no difference) and stopped?

Probably never know, but a cool variant.

Thanks Glen and Bill!

Bill....you have “earlyUEFitis”....very nice! And....contagious as heck.

My 1.36 million Underwood with a 1-43 barrel, has a “W” marked sear.  WarBaby! Shows that Winchester sent 4000 sears to Underwood in 2-43, another 2000 in 3-43, and still another 2000 in 4-43.  This Winchester sear also has grind marks indicating Underwood, for a time in early production, tried to adjust not only Underwood sears but those integrated from Winchester.  Grind marks are on both top and bottom.
