What a great get. These are original military contract, WWII era M1-Carbine rifles that have been either lightly or fully refurbished by our friends at James River Armory. We are selling them by manufacturer code and the ones being sold under this SKU have the manufacturing stamp Saginaw. This group of rifles was manufactured for the war effort by the Saginaw Steering Gear Division of the General Motors Corporation in either Saginaw or Grand Rapids Michigan. The Saginaw manufacturing plant was multi-faceted and very valuable during the war effort. In addition to M1 Carbines, during WWII Saginaw Steering Gear manufactured Caliber .30 Browning Machine Guns (i.e. M1919A4), Oerlikon, and BOFORS guns, tanks, tank destroyers, vehicle subassemblies, and armor-piercing projectiles. They operated two different facilities, one in Saginaw and one in Grand Rapids, and between the 2 facilities, they produced a total of 517,212 M1 Carbines. Rifles have and are being sold under their original serial numbers and have not been importer re-marked.
These were original WWII Era M1 Carbine rifles that were stored overseas for years before recently being re-imported back into the United States. All of these rifles have had all of their metal components fully re-blued back to 100% metal finish. However, some of the stocks were candidates for a full refinish, while others were not, so in some cases the stocks were fully refurbished and in other cases, they were only de-greased and lightly refurbished. While all of the metal surfaced have been re-blued back to as close to the original finish as possible there will be some variances in the stocks and the wood even in terms of color and grain and some will be cosmetically more attractive than others. As such, we are offering a hand select option as well. See video for details and a more complete description of each below.
