    My theory as to why the blank enblocs are SA is that they were made in-house so why identify them. The production of garands were low for the first couple of years so Springfield could keep up with the enbloc demand. When the production of garands dramatically increased, so did the demand for enblocs. Springfield could not keep up with the demand for enblocs so they were sub-contracted out. Now the enblocs had to be identified as to who made them, including SA. That's my 2 cents worth.
