Hi everyone, I'm please to be the owner of my first M1 Carbine. Unfortunately since I live in Kalifonia and they choose not to abide by the supreme courts ruling on "cooling off periods" I have to wait a bit to pick it up from the FFL. For now I know its a Saginaw. Got from an estate sale of friends father who had quite the collection. It is in the original box from where he got it. I am looking forward to posting pics so you all can possiblly idenify or at least maybe have some ideas about some number painted on them like arsonal numbers or club numbers or something. 

I'm totally getting the whole mil-surp bug and find these carbines fasinating (also managed to pick up a Norinco SKS, a Romanian M44 and a 1935 Yula 91/30) and will defintely be asking about best ways to preserve and clean these guns up so they last anothr liftime. 

Take care,

Welcome to the forum.  I'm convinced once you have it, there is no cure for the "bug".   Best you can hope for is it will go into remission occasionally. Looking forward to seeing some pics.
