if anyone can help me out, its 775928.
oh ps, the number under the trigger housing is 71281 if that means anything.

Sgt, I'm assuming your TSMG is a full-auto. If so, it was made by Savage (they began producing the M1 series TSMGs in mid-1942, IIRC.) Frank's (Iannamico) book should be able to narrow it down to a more specific date (sorry, I'm a bit remiss...I haven't bought it yet either.) If you're looking for specifics, such as what unit/which soldier, where the gun went, etc... you'd probably have better luck finding a basketball glove or a football bat. Of course, you could also try a FOIA request from the NFA branch for whatever they might have in the NFRTR on your gun. (Keep in mind, most of the info you'll be wanting, such as owners) will be redacted.)

If you click on the "my M1A1" you will find pics.......does that make it less useless?

Nice Gun! Looks like you have the wrong type of selectors for the M1A1 - they should be pin type, not paddle type.
I'd be happy to swap you both!
