After an 8 month wait I just picked up my Guide Lamp M3A1.  I'm thrilled to finally get it!  The Form-3 showed "US" as the manufacturer and the BATF didn't like that.  They sent the form back and wanted that updated with more correct information.  So the Form-4 now reads Guide Lamp Div, General Motors Corp, USA.  Fortunately they did this without completely starting over, so basically I was able to keep my place in line.

 

Anyway, happy to finally have it!  The first thing I did with it was change it over to the M3 guide rod assembly with the large backplate.

 

Here it is.

Very nice M3A1 and very smart move to swap in the M3 backplate.

I have a Guide M3 GG also, so I have acquired some parts kits over the years and took the large plate from one of those.

Congrats. I strongly recommend getting a suppressed barrel setup. It changes the gun dramatically for the better

Thanks huggytree.  Yes, I have suppressed barrel setups in both .45 and 9mm for my M3 already that I can swap onto this one!
