Did all '49 G80C's have a rigid rear section? Does anybody know about how many '49 G80C's were made?

The 'S' was added to the model when the 'S'pring frame was introduced, so that would imply all 1949 G80C machines were in rigid frames.

Numbers in Bacon show the first frame for the 1949 G80C model was numbered 1547C and the first for 1950 was 2105C, so that would mean 558 of them were made if no frames were spoiled or shipped separately as replacements.

The 1949 Parts Book has the compy parts listed on a few pages at the back.
There are no springer parts.

Qty sounds good - as long as there were no blocks of numbers not used, or padded out to boost numbers.

Its odd that Royal Enfield were having competition success with their Bullet springer, and yet AMC took several years to follow suit with springer compy CS models. I wonder if any C owners used road bike springer components, they'd been around for several years.
