I have put this on a couple of other places just trying to get opinions about what it is. It looks like new original finish to me.The barrel is marked Saginaw S.G. Div General Motors. A good friend told me I should post it here also because of how informative this forum has been for him. Thanks in advance!

It looks like an unused S.G. replacement barrel. Very hard to find any new replacement barrel let alone an S.G. How did you manage to find this one?

I found it locally along with quite a few other small nice parts, the guy has mainly Garand parts but only a few Carbine parts. I was able to talk him out of the Carbine parts. I think it was a good day! All of the parts are in really nice shape to unused.

You picked up some nice early parts as well as a few late ones. The trigger housing is S'G' and a couple of type 1 flip sights. Two earlier slides as well. A real great find. If I may how much did it cost you for these treasures?

Both of the flip sights are S'G' also, one of the front sights and a recoil plate.

I don't know what you paid, but it probably wasn't enough!

Add JimB's "Me Too"

Has anyone seen a WWII carbine barrel originally parked without having the chamber, gas cylinder and muzzle plugged ?

This is an Example of how Bubba Reparked: to include the barrel skirt, threads, inside the Chamber, over the original gas piston nut stakes and inside the muzzle.
Can you post a picture showing the inside of the Bore ?
If it's Parked..... Ask about any cautions you should take before considering shooting.Check the small gas vent/port hole for build up.

OP didn't include the picture showing the park filled Chamber.
I posted how he could remove the park from the areas described above.

To mauserman,
You've posted this barrel on many of the Carbine forums and have received replies from some of the best in the collecting field.

May I suggest you post about it on The Carbine Collector's Club Forum. There you'll get a comparison from studies since the early 70's. It will be compared vs a Data base and Spotters reports by not just weekend warriors but also by those who've written the books you'll find on the history, manufacturing, finishing techniques etc that were used on these since their conception.
Here's a link:

I tried to get a photo of the bore but could not get a good one, it is not parked and looks like a mirror as if a round has never gone down it.

That's VERY GOOD news.
If mine I'd clean the park from those areas using the method I mentioned on the Milsurp link. Not costly ($10-$15) and easy to do. Then the current finish/color will be right on.
Doing so will add quite a bit of value to that barrel.
Couple questions for you...Best if I send you a PM on Milsurp in the next couple days.

Cheers,
