11/19/18 - This is one of the rarest WW2 era carbine variations - the Un-Quality M1. A portion of Quality Hardware's contract was sub-contracted to Union Switch & Signal, where receivers were produced and given the name 'Un-quality'. These are only found from serials 4,432,XXX to 4,532,XXX (this one is 4,446,XXX). Correct Q-RMC marked stock, sling well and handguard. The stock shows age and handling wear but the 'P' proof and crossed cannon cartouche are still faintly visible. Various dings and small chips but no major cracks. Early high wood. No bayo lug and proper flip sight. Front barrel band (type 2) is correctly marked 'Q'. Front sight marked 'EU'. Barrel is Winchester made. Canfield's book states "a relatively small quantity (were made) from Winchester". Only about 35,000 of this variation were produced, with a much smaller portion made with Winchester barrels. KSG marked magazine. Comes with a correct WW2 cotton sling.
