Item No.: 8471 Price : SOLD
Description :
This is an original, WWII, U.S. M-1 carbine manufactured by Saginaw S'G' in about September of 1943. Carbines with this marking were produced at the Saginaw Steering Gear plant in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Only about 173,000 were produced, not counting those made for Irwin-Pedersen. This carbine, which falls in the first production group, part B, remains in "as built" condition. It has not been arsenal rebuilt or modified. It is in the correct high wood stock, with the proper S'G' cartouche and "RSG" stamped in the sling cut. The edge of the butt plate is stamped PM-S'G'. The handguard has two rivets. The early flip sight is marked "B-IP". The barrel is made by Underwood and dated "9-43". There is a Type 1 barrel band with the correct Type II wide swivel. The swivel is marked " KV-S'G' ". The carbine is in very fine condition with about 95% of its original finish remaining. The correct blued bolt has some light overall wear of the blued finish. The butt plate has some tiny dings on the edges. The gun has an excellent bore and mechanics. The stock is very fine, with just a couple of tiny dings from storage. The cartouche is a little faint on the bottom due to the curvature of the stock. There are two notches cut into the left side of the pistol grip. This gun supposedly went to the Pacific and these represent the owner's kill tally, but who can say? Included is a very fine, original, Type 2 magazine made by Standard Products and an original Khaki sling and oiler. There is a little fraying of the webbing at the front swivel and the tips of the sling have a worn finish and a bit of rust staining. This is a great, untouched, WWII Carbine by one of the scarcer producers. Stock no. 22324
