This Winchester Carbine was produced in November of 1943. The carbine’s serial number is 1281303. It has the standard 18 inch Winchester undated barrel. The bore is in very fine bright condition with no issues. All of the parts are correct for the serial number range and production date. Almost all of the parts are correctly marked with the”W”. The other parts are left correctly unmarked. This carbine has the correct blued flat bolt. The extractor and firing pin is “W” marked. The Magazine is Winchester coded as well as the oiler. The Winchester high wood stock is marked W.R.A – G.H.D. with no box around the letters. The sling well has the “W” stamped in the well. The hand guard is “W” stamped. This carbine has the correct early “flip” rear sight that is original to this gun and not restored. This carbine is in service used condition. There is no abuse to this carbine. The wood has all of the original finish intact. There are some minor dings present on the stock. This is a very nice service used Winchester carbine! This carbine has not been rebuilt or restored. It is getting very difficult to find original M1 carbines in original as issued condition today! Here is an original as issued Winchester Carbine that would be a great addition in any collection!

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.
