I'm still working on the translation, but if I were to venture a guess its a name, but I'll let you know when I come up with something more concrete. I will definetely do as you suggest, clean it up, and put it away. Its not a shooter, and as I don't intend to collect the things, I suppose it will one day be sold to someone who will appreciate it fully to finance another purchase.
Thank you dk8019. He waited long enough to marry!
As I indicated below, these carbines were refurbished with (no doubt) USGI parts, and were also incorporated earlier, with the massive supply the US Governmemnt included with the original shipment as outlined below, from the Archive Files. As for your tag, it's probably a name, I would venture to say, but nothing in stone? Wise decision to clean it up and store it away.
Great trading material. I do believe... one day, it will be highly in demand for those who try to collect one of each. BTW... how many of you guys have a Springfield Armory gun, in your collection?? All you need is a USGI Receiver and Barrel, with as many SA marked parts, as you can find. Should be an easy one to build, and least expensive...IMO! SA parts show up quite frequently, today. I had one, that I built, several years ago. Several of my old timers collecting buddies were scratching their heads, wondering why they did not think of this simple incorporation to their collections? Just an idea that popped into my head one day, and I followed through with it.
