Default SA-52 at auction

Just happened to look at the auction page and saw the SA-52 listed. When I saw the 3.6m serial #,,,,,,,,
Checked out the pics & AhhhhhYup, it's a plugged M1-C!. Somehow they missed that in description.
SA-52's are a nice catch. Getting a "C", that's a REALLY NICE catch. I found my "plugged C" Sa-52 mixed in the rack grades years ago so I don't need another.

I know I put back SA-52 and "plugged" receivers at the NS about 10 years ago, because they were "second tier" compared to gorgeous Greek returns at the time. Hindsight...

That’s crazy. I only had tire kickers when I tried moving my correct sa52 m1c. Guess I need to let the cmp put it on their site for me...

What is a “correct sa52 m1c”?

For the most part, these plugged M1Cs were never functioning rifles prior to being plugged. SA had a bunch of M1C receivers with mounts already installed at the end of the war. They sat on a shelf until the Korean war, at which time some were built into M1C sniper rifles and some were plugged to make much needed m1 rifles.

I am new to Garands so forgive the dumb question - Am I reading the numbers on that SA-52 barrel correctly - is that a 1955 barrel on it?

Who were the 'experts?'
