    New To Me SA 3.63 with Data Sheet and Pics

    Very proud to own this. Can’t believe how well it’s been maintained. Will verify later but was told it was a CMP purchase in the early 90s. Everything seems original. No reason to doubt the seller. Let me know what you think?

    Very nice rifle. Nice wood. Seems you have a keeper with this one. How is the bore? Have you shot it yet?

      Very nice rifle. When I get one I disassemble it completely as well. Every metal bit gets a thin film of grease as a preservative, (I have found rust in rarely accessed places such a under the lower handguard.) I then grease every sliding and moving surface with a little extra as I reassemble it.
      The thief may possess something he stole, but he does not own it.
      The owner has a right to take his property back from the thief.

        That is definitely a keeper.

              I have not shot it yet. Been busy with kids fall sports and working on a couple other Garands. Plus I live in Alabama. I want to be able to relish and enjoy the experience. The weather is just now getting to a point to enjoy a day at the range.

              The only part I’m a little concerned isn’t original is the safety. But info is inconclusive regarding the variations in markings from SA-11 to SA_11. So I have to look at the parts around it and see that the coloring is spot on matched. That and I have no reason to believe it’s not accurate.

                  I would not expect all parts to match in color on a original rifle as parts were not all parkerized in the same location with the same solution

                    I have a 3.7 SA (5-45). I'll have to check and see if the safety is a -11 or _11. I don't remember. It's been forever since I looked at it.
