Product Information

This is one of more scarce M1 carbines that was produced during WWII. Saginaw Steering Gear "SG" only made two batches of M1 Carbines, however two other batches were produced at the other Saginaw Steering Gear plant (Grand Rapids - previously the Irwin Pedersen plant). And to confuse things further the 2nd batch from which this M1 is from was actually made before the first batch of allocated serial numbers. Serial numbers from which this M1 is from run from 3,212,520 - 3,651,019 - April 1943, - July, 1943. This M1 is number 3,319805 of which a total of only 293,592 were made. Another major factor to bear in mind when dealing with (S'G') serial number production dates is many serial numbers were transferred from one Saginaw plant to another, production periods overlapped and some (S'G') receivers were produced out of order. Very confusing! Both receiver and barrel are Saginaw SG marked on this example.

Deactivated to current specifications with a tensioned trigger and cocking lever that will return under spring tension. The magazine can be removed and the cocking lever will hold back in the safe position.
