Default Late SG in Saginaw Range

I recently picked up a 3.62 million SG in the Saginaw range. It is all SG with the exception of the type 2 rear sight and replacement B/R marked hammer. The mag catch is IP marked. Trigger housing has the hallmark IP through and through tool hole as opposed to the SG dimple. Barrel is Underwood 11/43 and has the original SG front sight. I have no intention of restoring the hammer or rear sight. Interestingly enough the slide has very significant tooling marks on the inside. You can make out the S then the other . I am curious if anyone else has observed rough tooling marks on the inside of other SG slides? Thanks and Happy New Year

Yes, just picked one up fairly recently with heavy swirling machine marks. Person said it was unmarked and priced accordingly. When I received it and could look close I found the SG and was very happy to have done so. Kind of felt bad for the seller but you win some, you lose some. S was stamped light but G and apostrophes were easy to see especially magnified. Congrats on your pickup!

Thanks, same to you. You hit the nail on the head when you said heavy swirling machine marks. That is exactly what I have on mine.

Happy to help assuage your concern about your slide. Definitely kind of tough to find the marking if you arent familiar with the machine marks or have a clue about what you are looking for. I had to check to make sure I was not seeing things I wanted to see. Once I saw another like it I knew that was what it was and can find it clearly now even just with my own eye.
