Hello.  I have a late WWII manufactured Winchester M1 Carbine that has "SFCC CO SACCO" on the right side of the receiver just below the rear sight.  For the life of me, I cannot find what that means.  Is it an importer?  An org that used the M1 Carbine after WWII?  Something else?

Nice find guys!  Yes, it does actually say "GFCC CO SACCO" - it's very small and difficult to see.  I thought the "G" was an "S".

So this one of the Israeli M1 Carbines.
