Saginaw Steering & Gear M1 Carbine

This is a fairly nice example of an early production Saginaw Steering & Gear M1 Carbine produced during WWII.  It's been overhauled due to the adjustable rear sight, but its a fantastic example of a somewhat harder to find manufacturer.  I am not sure if the High-Wood, I-Cut Rock-Ola stock is original to the carbine or not.  Saginaw supposedly used some Rock-Ola I-Cut stocks in very early rifles, but this one lacks the RSG and acceptance cartouches that you would expect to see.
