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”?

Permit me to boast: I have an SA 52 with 52 barrel, JLG stock and WIN receiver!
(My collection favorite.)

My WRA SA52 also has a 1952 barrel, SA open box stock, and the receiver was likely made in the first few days of WRA production.

Verified with McClain with a letter. I’d say the guy who sorted them out and built the database is as close to an expert as you’ll find. Verified ex m1c. Ro wall, that beautiful. We should move this thread to the main garand page... good info.

I have been looking at the SA-52 plugged M1C for a while now, with goal of getting one as correct as possible. (My definition of correct is JLC stock, late 1952/early 1953 SA barrel and mostly early post war SA parts.) There have been several quality one on the auction sight, but I kept getting wildly outbid. It didn't help that this thread is pointing their existence out. I finally decide it would be a lot cheaper to bid on a barrel receiver and build the rest out. Got what I wanted. Just now need to source out the rest. Fortunately I have several of the parts already.

Very interested in "M1C staking" where did you get the info that the "depot stores" M1C receivers had mounts already installed at the end of the war?

Now that you asked the question, I might be remembering wrong. Page 31 Collection the American Sniper Rifle 1945 to 2000, Joe Poyer refers to 1,500 M1C rifles being withdrawn from storage. So it looks like the plugged may have be decommissioned M1Cs.

But I want to say that I read it some where, but I don't remember where.
