I've got an S'G' Saginaw carbine with a B. stamped on the left side of the receiver.What does it mean?Is it a sub contractor mark?The first picture isn't very good so I turned off the flash.The second is a little dark.

I have a SG (Saginaw plant) with a Y stamped in the same position. Interesting question.

Those are inspection marks, not subcontractors. You can find a lot of different letters stamped there bith on the S'G' carbines and the IP carbines.

Those were put there after certain milling operations were completed.
