OK, the Saginaw SG I recently bought has the stamping D7161843 making it equipped with a type VI slide. (It's an M1, not an M1A1, M2 or M3), These type VI slides work correctly in a regular M1, right? Reason I'm asking is i can't get the bolt to lock in the open position. I have it apart and think the spring might be stuck, or the spring and / or pin may be worn. The slot in the receiver looks fine. Since I'm going to the south store next week, I may bring it, and possibly buy a new spring and pin.
Confusing thing is, according to the Scott Duff Carbine book, it is an early manufacture slide but it's a type VI??? Of course Mr Duff didn't do me any favors by not indexing his book not dles he clearly state HOW to engage the slide lock (found that here on the forums - thanks gents!). Anyway, I'll re-assemble it and see how it works with the pin and spring cleaned out.
