Strange M1 carbine receiver found

Digging around in my dad stuff in the garage, I found this receiver, its a saginaw sg s/n#3249086. Its also stamped on the side FED.ORD. INC. SO. EL MONTE CA It was covered in a thick coat of paint. The strange thing is it has this strange hole drilled in the side, but otherwise it looks like a standard carbine. Dad passed away a few years ago and mom has no clue about it. I stripped the painr off and took a few pictures and maybe you guys can shed some light on this m1. is it a repo or genuine? thanks guys


Here's the link for the photo album

It is a Saginaw S'G', not a Saginaw SG. Saginaw took over the Irwin Pedersen contract after they were booted from the carbine program for non-performance. The S'G' receivers were made at the IP plant in Grand Rapids. The SG receivers were made at the Saginaw plant in Saginaw.

The hole is the locator hole typical of IP/S'G' receivers. They were the only mfg. whose receivers had this hole. The radiused shoulder on the locator hole on your receiver shows that it was an early S'G' receiver, possibly one originally made by IP but not finished before they lost the contract. The interesting thing is that it doesn't look like the hole on your receiver goes all the way through?

The Fed Ord stamp is just an import mark. This receiver was on a gun that was given to a foriegn country, then imported back into the US by a civilian company when the foriegn country sold it as surplus, probably sometime in the 80's.

I see why they painted it. Jeez, that thing is ugly. Still, a receiver that would generate some interest on the market.

hey, if you're building it up, you should look into some riverbank armory parts. I hear they have the pieces of the carbine George Washington carried in the first battle of Bull Run

Well, the pitting and the import stamp would be below the woodline. With a fresh park job I think it would probably look very nice. Good luck!
