Have seen a few variations of E codes. Some cleaner than others. For those interested, the E codes and those with initials are talked about in CCNL 375. Hopefully more to come.

Backward sight and an OI stock?? Hasn't E114 been bounced around a number of different auction sites?

It's interesting that there's also an Underwood with an OI stock and no serial number. And it doesn't look like it's been removed. The receiver looks damaged so maybe it escaped the factory somehow before being serialized.

Noticed this one too, and was wondering if it was a "lunchbox special" carried out from the factory. Looks like it's been together a while, and the front sight pin isn't completely in and staked like it should be. Unmarked barrel with an Underwood looking profile.

Have seen more than a few of these in recent weeks, including the one still for sale on GB.

For anyone in the area who may be interested, one of the E codes in the first post (sold the other one) will be at the Hampton GS next weekend (July 13th-14th). Also there will be a Featured Carbine or two and pehaps a few others. PM me if you plan on attending. Looking forward to talking shop, telling stories and meeting other collectors.
