    Yep, It's a Saginaw.

    Don't worry if plan "A" fails, there are still 25 other letters in the alphabet.

    A few of the manufactures had that "G" style symbol (which is suppose to represent the initials "JLC" ) on their mags.
    I'm not sure but maybe it's the initials of a subcontractor. IBM and Standard Products are a couple others that had that
    symbol too.
