This Winchester was produced around 1944 or 1945. The Carbine’s serial number is 1345661. This gun has the standard 20 inch carbine barrel chambered for the 30 W.C.F. [30-30] cartridge. The front sight is standard for this model. The rear sight is the Redfield adjustable receiver sight. This carbine shows no sign of being fired. The bore is in minty condition. The original bluing would rate a 99+% condition. The stock and forend have all of the original finish intact. The stock and forend have some figuring to the wood. This carbine has survived in unused condition since the 1940’s! The original box is serial numbered to this gun. The serial number is faint but still readable. The box is in poor condition. The end label is intact. There is an instruction booklet still in the box. The action is gummy with old oil which is to be expected with a gun that has been in storage all these years! Here is a great looking carbine with the original box for any collector!

For those folks that do not know me yet, I’m very hard of hearing on the phone. Therefore when you would call me, I will pick up the phone and tell you that I will call you right back. I have caller ID just so that you know, the reason for that is I cannot use a regular phone. I have to switch over to what is called a voice carry over phone. When I call you back you will hear my voice in our conversation, an operator will type your conversation to me on my phone view screen. With me reading what you are saying to me saves me a lot of confusion for me mishearing words.
I do want to talk to you and answer your questions without mistakes or miscommunications. This system works pretty good, so please be willing to be patient with my hearing loss.
My wife Marcia has fine hearing on the phone and is quite knowledgeable about firearms and is very able to help you over the phone.
