Ahh, gunny. I don't think you were looking at the keyboard again. I think it's "old war HORSE" not war hours.
Remember, we don't know touch typing, we gots to keep our eyes on the key board as we type.
OK, I don't think anyone else saw it.

I'll save my spot also. I've got an early Irwin B/R, and I'm gathering parts for now. I'm going the S'G' route for most of the parts.

I am working on a S'G'... if I can ever find the barrel band, I be glad to share.

Todd440: I have an extra early IP-W push button safety if you have something to trade that I need. PM me for pictures.

Default Saginaw S'G' brought back to life...

My B/R was obtained from a fellow forum member (GUNNER945) in trade for a WRA Garand receiver.

After months without being able to secure the S'G' hammer, trigger, barrel band, front sight, magazine catch... I decided to go ahead and just complete this as a "shooter" and worry about those parts down the road.

I had some struggles with the lug on the receiver and had to file down a recoil plate to get it to sit correctly in the stock.

I also had to go through 3 or 4 bolts before we found one that headspaced properly (and was a matching color). I did have a S'G' flip sight but didn't use it as I wanted the correction capability of the Type 3 rear sight.

Had a great day at the range on Saturday, shot next to a fellow with a .50 cal black powder musket. His cloud of smoke kept drifting in front of me. LOL

After about 30 rounds, the S'G' got settled in the stock and started to pull a tighter group.

Never going to try to pass it off as original, but I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. I've done a number of Garand's, but this is the first ground up Carbine. Proud to have brought another War Baby back to life and share it with the Forum.




p.s. Don't ask about the cost. I didn't keep track.

Looks real good. What did you use to highlight the letters and numbers?

I used Kiwi white shoe polish. I tried it once thinking it would be temporary, but it holds up pretty good.
