Serial # 3.2 million We need more of your serial number to determine if SG or S'G'. Split serial number block: Started out as Irwin Pedersen after IP got the boot the rest of this block became S'G'. 3,212,520-3,250,019 Next block started out as SG 3,250,020, then became S'G' before the end of this block 3,651,519. It's complicated. Just give us more of your serial number. And home address! Just kidding, Don't trust Bruce the Swami.

About your stock, Does it look like Walnut? Have a Long (4.15') or short (3.15') barrel channel? Is the wood cross bridge intact? Any internal cuts for the M2 parts. Aka selector switch. Is it possible that you can post a few pictures of it, including the sling well marking?
