Yes, Singer made M1's. Is your friend interested in buying some beachfront property in Arizona? If so, I have a deal for him.

No, Singer only made 1911'45's and very few of those.

I don't really know, but there was a pic posted over at CSP of one a while back. Could have been a photoshop though

Did they not make a M1 carbine?

garand manufactures for the US are:

springfield armory (not inc.)

No other companies made garands for the US.

Supposedly, Singer did produce some carbine receivers. I don't think they ever went in to full production.

Singer did NOT make M1 rifles.

Singer MIGHT have made some parts for the M1 Carbine. I don't know. Carbine collectors chime in.

Singer DID make a very small number of 1911-A1 .45's..... VERY small number.... 700??? 7000??? Again, collectors chime in. This is one of the "holy grail" pieces for 1911 collectors as they are hard to find as chickens teeth and pricier than Premium gas in a gold can.

A childhood friend has a Singer 1911-A1. His pop was an Army 2nd Looie, Officer Courier, in the Pacific during WWII. Brought it hom in '46 after carrying it hither and yon for several years. I've shot it a few times. Nice weapon. .... and NO, I don't think it'll ever be sold out of the family.

Best to all,

Garands forever

Seems like Singer made around 500 .45's as part of an educational order. They didn't produce any more than that.

When I was on a pistol team the .45 that I fired was a Singer. What do you wanna' bet that our government dollars went into destroying it when they adopted the M9!

Ordnance did have a Ed Order made by Singer they were for the Model 1911A1 and only 500 were made. Their Serial numbers ran with an "S" before the number. Those serial number are S 800001 to S800500.
Singer never built any M1 Garand Rifles.
I hope this data helps
Thanks again

The Singer 1911's are supposed to be worth upwards of $25,000.

The Singer 1911A1's were made in Elizabeth, NJ. Contract was for 1000 but only 500 were nade before the Govt. cancelled the contract. There are lots of fakes out there too.
