Default My new SG is a Benicia

SA 3352717 as manufactured in Dec, 1944 and rebuilt by the Benicia Arsenal 2-52 or thereabouts. Although it has several dings, the stock has great color with a faint circle P on the grip and a fresh circle P on the heel with a large BA on the left side of the stock. The metal is excellent save for a dime size area on the Trigger housing with minor pitting. The replacement barrel is a 2-52 SA with a ME of 1.5 and a TE of 3. Many of the parts are original to the gun. The bolt is a -19SA A-5 heat lot which I believe is correct, the gas plug has a P and Hexagon, the follower marked 11, hammer is a 2SA, oprod is a 35382 SA used on armory rebuilt rifles, Trigger milled hook with no markings, the front sight ears are .630, trigger housing is a 12-SA and the safety is C46015-9SA. The stock was very dry so I applied a generous rubbing of RLO. This Benicia filled a gap in my collection and I am well pleased.

No, and I don't know of any markings that would prove that. I know it isn't a SA. RRAD. Anniston or a LEAD. Perhaps there are other clues I don't know about.
