Here's a few S'G' carbines from my database that are close to yours, Ted. It seems that the 3.2's were made up months earlier than the 3.5's. the same is reflected in the S.G.'s in that 5 of them were used in the US government qualification tests in mid-May, 1943. I'm thinking that the 3.2 S'G' receiver with the 3-44 Underwood barrel was either held back or barreled later but it's anybody's guess when it comes to Saginaw Division carbines!

3.241xxx with 6-43 Underwood
3.244xxx with 6-43 Underwood
3.246949 with 2-43 Underwood
3.258963 with 3-44 Underwood
3.544142 with Underwood (no date given)
3.554xxx with Saginaw
3.557xxxwith 11-43 Underwood
3.591793 with 9-43 Buffalo Arms
3.594509 with 7-43 Buffalo Arms
3.599xxx with 9-43 Buffalo Arms

Does yours have an undated Saginaw barrel? If so, it could be original.

Ping, unfortunately it has a dated 4-44 Underwood barrel, and my 36406** S'G' (about nov-dec 43) has an Inland 1-44 barrel. Have to assume both barrels put on during a rearsenal. I'd like to think the later one with the Inland barrel was correct but theres just no facts to support this. Ha. Fanciful thinking goes like this, its Jan 2 1944: Ring, ring, "Inland here Sam speaking", other end says "Sam, this is Bill over at Saginaw Grand Rapids....look we got a handfull of carbines we need to deliver now that our contract has expired and have run out of Underwoods. Can you spare a few?" "Sam, says sure I'll send some right over"................and my 3.6 got a 1-44 Inland. Yeah, sure, and CMP has a new supply of carbines and they're selling for $200 each.

Edited to add: A friend suggested I add addit info on the 35117** that its marked SG on left side of the receiver, has a wide tang, and no hole. He thinks this might be unusual?

Is 35117** an S'G'? If so, Saginaw made some receivers for Grand Rapids in that range that would be marked like his with wide tang. They were sent to Grand Rapids to be assembled. I wonder what it has for a barrel?
