US M1 .30 Carbine, made by Saginaw SG, serial number 3360xxx.
Saginaw carbines are somewhat rare, they accounted for about 8% of the carbines
made during World War Two. This one has an undated Saginaw barrel with a bright
bore. Stock, bolt and internals including the operating slide are Saginaw,
other parts are of mixed manufacture. All parts are described below and shown
in photos. The AAN stock marking indicates a rebuild at Anniston or Augusta.
The carbine has been disassembled, examined, cleaned, lubricated,
and test fired.
Sling/oiler and magazine noted below are included, plus these extras: a fleece lined repro US marked carry case, repro US marked magazine pouch with two additional 15 round
magazines (unmarked), and a reprint of the US M1 .30 Carbine manual.
