Topic - Italian M1 Carbine info and Requests
Posted: Nov 21 2021 at 1:36pm By Tahoe303
Hello  
Been awhile since I've posted anything here but just picked up a couple carbines.

Thought I'd pick the Collectors brains here to see what I might have!

I have read the great Italian Carbine Thread with photos and printed a copy for my files.
I just picked up a couple of M1 Carbines one of which is an Italian reimport the wood and finish look identical to the first photo in this thread.

Inland #732603 with an SG (Saginaw) stamped on the left of the receiver. 
Bbl is an Inland   General Motors Date of 5-43 Muzzle Wear <1.5
Hand guard is early 2 rivet Inland and very loose at the nose end, Stock only has an FAT 65 rebuild stamp on it and a small "G" stamped in the front of the pistol grip. Not sure what the finish on the wood is.
The Type 3 barrel band is so tight you can hardly slide it forward to release the handguard.

Wrapped around the bottom of the Triggerguard is what looks like an official white ID tape with blue lettering:

CMP Games, Creedmore Cup Match.

Round bolt, all finish matches and seems like a smooth light gray, all lettering sharp. The only part which has a different deeper dark color is the Type III rear sight and it has bright whitening in the windage lines.
This is a very nice-looking carbine I have an Italian Sling on the way, reason I went after this one was to me it is a Saginaw variant; I have a Saginaw S'G' - Irwin Petersen ($50 in 1971!), and a Saginaw S.G., which I just picked up also, it came with an odd bayonet which turns out to be the Italian bayonet for Italian M1 Carbines it's in mint condition. The Saginaw S.G. is a rebuild with 2 proof P's and faint rebuild stamp I'm still trying to figure out. The wood on it is all SG marked.

Will have to print and remember how to do a Data sheet when I have time.

Oh yes NO IMPORT markings, I won't buy a USGI firearm with Import markings.

I'm guessing I'll be sending off to CMP for provenance letters soon.

I'm curious if the Saginaw S.G. is from DCM/CMP also. 

The last Inland I lucked into a couple years back for $650 had sold on the CMP Auction in 2008 for $850. I recognized the CMP hang tag on it (sent the request letter to CMP) IDing some unusual parts so I jumped on it and got lucky!
