**Saginaw M1 Carbine w/ Oiled Packaged Magazine

.30 carbine caliber. 18" barrel length. SN: 5855014. Gas-operated semi automatic rifle without a magazine. Item features what appears to be a type-III barrel band and bayonet lug, with a rounded sling port, rounded bolt, low wood, two-hole handguard, rotary safety, and adjustable aperture and fixed blade "ear protector" sights. Has a dull blued military finish, plain semi pistol grip walnut stock, and an olive-drab nylon sling. Markings include "U.S. CARBINE/CAL. .30 M1" to front of breech, "SAGINAW S.G./5855014" to rear of receiver, and "SAGINAW S.G./GENERAL MOTORS" toward muzzle of barrel. Item does not appear to have any cartouche marks to wood stock. Includes an original magazine still sealed in original oiled packaging. 


Very good to excellent. Bore is bright and rifling is sharp. Finish has some losses to top of bolt and several dings or pit marks toward muzzle of barrel. Wood stock has some light scratches overall but is in great condition. Handguard and forend have started to darken with a patina. Nylon sling has some discoloration to fabric, and oxidation to hardware.
