11/17/23 - This is a scarce, early Winchester M1 Carbine, one of the first ~40k produced. A full parts guide is included in the photos of this listing. All Winchester parts throughout, with original finish on the metal. Receiver is in excellent condition, with most of the finish loss showing as thinning of the barrel. Excellent, shiny bore. Winchester stock with I-cut and sharp cartouche on the right side. It has no cracks but does have some chipping/handling wear on the left side. The hanguard is a Winchester production but is a different color from the stock, so may have been paired together.
