OOPS!!! I did it again! Just won another Winchester M1 that I didnt expect to.. It was a tossup between this one and the first one, but I was afraid if I bid on this one first, I would miss out on both, it happens sometimes, so I bid on the first one and got it.
This other one closed just now and I bid in the last 15 minutes, got high bid and won it. Good grief!
This one may be the better buy too, but I wont know till I see them both.
Oh well, deciding which one to keep might be interesting!
And I need a Winchester in the safe. Let me know if you will sell!!!

Wont see it for a bit, just won today on GB. CMP rifle with case, paperwork etc. SA barrel gauges +1 on both ends. Suspect not too many Win parts but the receiver is and looks pretty good, stock will probably need stripping, wanted a shooter grade and something to dink around with and this should fit.

Inside the clip well I see a printed label with some what appears to be Danish on it with elevation numbers, so am wondering if it might be a Danish return, but dont see anything that would indicate that. Either way is OK by me.
I will of course have to wait upon receipt, the required 10 day jail period for this "assault rifle" before I can bring it home.
That makes 3 of the 4 makers, guess I will have to start looking for a Cornbinder now!
Good luck on the Cornbinder.

Now, you've got to find a Gap Letter, Arrowhead, Postage Stamp variations as well!

I hope you have plenty $$$.

Enjoy.

Got my Winny back in the late 1980's with the DCM. Took her for a spin a couple months ago.

Pretty sweet getting a Win from DCM.
My 1990 DCM was an H&R with new SA barrel and mostly SA parts, had a really nice walnut stock that just needed finishing. Used it to shoot matches with and cleaned up at the local Garand match with it.
Still have it.

Had a look at the first one today, it finally got here yesterday, took 12 days, via Fedex. Looks real good overall, bore is bright and clean as well as a CMP gauge of 1 on both ends so should be a good shooter. SA barrel, op rod and bolt. Trigger housing is WRA with a mix of parts.
Stock looks better in hand than in the pics oddly enough.
Must now wait 10 business days to bail it out of the mandated state pokey.
Second one should land tomorrow or day after, got here much quicker than the first.
Look forward to shooting them.

The receiver leg of this second Winnie M1 has LEAD and a date electro penciled on it. Not knowing what this meant I looked it up and find that it means a rebuild at the Letterkenny Arsenal which is said to be about the best place to get one from, if thats accurate.
It did appear to be a pretty solid example as did the first one.
