serial #1868941, 30 Carbine, 18" 8-1943 dated Buffalo Arms barrel with a bright near excellent bore showing perhaps a touch of frosting in the grooves. The metal surfaces show an arsenal parkerzied finish that is drifting to brown with some light spots of oxidation staining here and there. The highwood walnut stock rates very good with an older added varnish, a strong boxed "SG" cartouche on the right side of butt, a partially faded ordnance wheel, a faint "RSG" marking in the left sling cut, a few dings and scattered handling marks. The front sight is marked "N" and all other parts appear to be correctly of Saginaw or Saginaw subcontractor manufacture. A green GI canvas sling is included but no magazine is present. A solid Saginaw Carbine that appears substantially correct. (208737-282) {C&R} [Dr. Louis C. March Jr. Collection] (1000/1500) SOLD FOR $1,955.00
