I think there is another thread in here somewhere talking about C-SAA being a known San Antonio Arsenal rebuild cartouche

I agree with you about the chance of zero of having a reproduction part on an Ethiopian return carbine. Reproduction parts have turned a lot of people away from carbine collecting. I did me, until I learned to spot real parts, most of the time. The best way I found to learn to spot fake parts was to have real parts. These Ethiopian carbines are a good way to learn what real parts look like.
I tend to like the late carbines. Few if any, late parts are being reproduced.
Tell me about refinished junk parts. I just bought a carbine last week with a lot of them.
Sorry, I do not understand your comment about "cork sniffing" types. Unless you are saying some people(me) are stuck up, for not buying ten of'em. I am a Jack Black man, myself with a little Crown mixed in now and then.
I am sorry if my comment, meant to help Jason blend in the import stamp faster on his carbine, hurt someones feelings. I tend to forget, hundreds of people read these posts.
Just like the Bavarian carbines turned into their own as collectibles, so too will these Ethiopian carbines turn into their own collectible area.
Guys, buy all you can, as fast as you can.
Happy Collecting,
I think it blends pretty good. I appreciate the advice with the salt water.
