I happened to pop into a small shop that I used to go to, a couple of weeks ago, and ended taking this one home. It’s dirty and dusty and looks straight out of the closet. It’s missing the correct swivel which I hope to hunt down at Tulsa this fall.

Thanks guys, glad you like. The photos are on a cloud covered day but still kind of bright out, against a white backdrop, sheet, poster board etc, with an IPhone and then edited with all the stock features that are on the phone, no special software or camera. One of the biggest tricks of it, is holding the object off the background about a foot or so, eliminating the shadow against it.

When I was working in the western United States had the little gun shops that I would go to when I was in the area,near Gillette WY stopped by a shop and they had a M1 Carbine, someone had put an adjustable Plainfield rear sight and a Williams front sight go the gun cheap dealer said that nobody wanted it science it was modified. I knew what it was so I purchased it. It was a National Postal Meter. When I was leaving the guy said there was a small box of parts that came in with the gun so he gave them to me. Got to the motel and took the gun apart, it was a 100 per cent correct parts except the sights even the stock and handguard was correct and no Import mark, and wouldn't you know it the Original front and rear sight was in the box of parts. That was about 6 years ago. Never know what can be found. Nice find on your part.

You didn't show any of the internal parts but just from your excellent photos I would say your S.G. is mostly all original. I hope you are going to send a data sheet to the Carbine Club. If you do be sure to send the numbers that are in the sling cut also.

I recently bought a bolt tool and a Wolf Spring Kit and replaced all the springs. It was flawless before and it works as if it were new again. Now to find new ammunition for it. The carbine has been re-arsenaled and the stock has its serial number on it. Was told there were given to the Israelis now it’s back home.

A beautiful Saginaw S.G. carbine you have there. I have a Saginaw but mine is a later piece than yours. It has the round bolt and machined adjustable rear sight. I have fired it just to verify it functions OK.
