Topic - Spotter’s Report: Underwood dated 9/42 barrel
Posted: Jun 27 2021 at 7:52pm By SSNPingjockey
Attended the local gun show in Hickory, NC this weekend.  This show does not typically have a lot of WWII firearms, but this weekend was an exception.  Quite a few carbines this time, all priced very high.

One that caught my eye was an Underwood with s/n 288xxxx that was in very nice condition and all correct WWII form.  What blew me away was the 9/42 barrel.

I did a little research and conversed with Dan a bit, and it appears legit, though I could not discern whether it was original to the 288xxxx receiver or not.

Another Internet forum post I found from 2005 showed another carbine owner who was also stunned to have a 9/42 Underwood barrel on his 613xxxx receiver.  A responder to the OP of the 2005 post stated that he had an Underwood 9/42 dated barrel on his s/n 144xxxx.

So, legit original appearing extremely early 9/42 barrels on 1st block, 2nd block, and 4th block Underwoods. 

The top two photos are of the 288xxxx barrel and the bottom is from the 613xxxx.
