Just picked this up. I’ve stripped her down and to my knowledge everything is correct for S.G. I believe it to be possibly as issued

And I know you can’t tell much from the pics but I just had to share!

I agree, it appears to be a straight as issued carbine...Does it have a high wood stock?....Bodes

It’s a low wood. I believe it’s a March of 44 production.

Looks like a nice one. Mag catch looks like it has been replaced with a Type III at some point, I think it should have a IIA, no?

I’ll have to search that one more. It’s marked S.G. With an M on the face

It could be correct depending on serial block, I don't have my books handy at the moment - just going from memory. 🙂

It was produced during their last run I do believe. It’s a 5.8 mil

I wasn't sure what the cutoff time was for the high wood, just curious if the stock too had this early feature....Nice rifle...Congrats, Bodes

I can’t say for sure either as I too don’t have my books handy. But a couple other 44 productions in my collection are low woods.

Thanks man. Just can’t get enough of them. I think I got it for a decent price too.

Nice carbine. I thought my safety may have been replaced as it is a light color while the other parts have darker varying shades but it looks just like yours.

So many parts were made by so many contractors. I expect to see variations of color. IMO, wear patterns can be more important as long as the finish is period

Very nice I’d say....congrats on the find...! Probably as-issued.

Wow... nice find! Judging from the photos it must not have cost you an arm and a leg... maybe just an arm as we can't see the right one. Then again, it's likely holding the camera. ;-)

I paid 1700!

A beautiful carbine in any case.  With current ammo prices, it's getting more and more pricey to shoot (if it's a shooter).

I fired it once. Probably won’t again.

Very nice carbine. They are a blast to shoot. Yours is a desirable maker too. Congrats.

Yeah I didn’t expect to get this one like I did. Only 5 more makers to go!
