It does make you wonder why OS made some late Irvine engines. I never owned one myself so I never noticed the carb branding.
Except for a couple of perfectly satisfactory (but rattly-sounding at tickover) RCV58 CD's I purchased when they were actually made in the UK I stick to OS as some of the Chinese copies are complete rubbish. EG - I had two 'well known' ones where the carbs were so leaky air still got in when the throttle was fully closed and you could not cut the engine.
It's a shame that the choice of 'good' engines has decreased so much. And it started before electrics became so popular so it's not entirely due to that..

Gave then a chance to test out Chinese production with a brand they were running down. Same shop prices and cheap manufacture.

Superb little engine as is the 36, I have had three .36s over the years but they are well down on power compared to the .39 - a Weston Genesis mini pipe adds a few hundred revs too.
