    taking photos

    On the early Winchester rifles, often the DuLite color will give the impression of not having the blue shade in many
    photos. While you can get the detail of the objects the actual color is not well represented with some photos.

    The sunlight is quick and easy without an elaborate lighting system

    I agree. My best rifle pictures are taken in sunlight.

      Both rifles have annealed heels ?

        Only the bottom rifle has anneal, top rifle was sold on CMP auction in 2011 for $1905.00 and listed as without anneal by CMP in
        the description on the auction listing. With Redfield's help on the early parts and my wood supply, I was able to get a satisfactory
        restoration for my collection

          It's hard to find early Winchester receivers without an annealed heel.

            I'd love to find one myself someday, but for now I have other projects that are taking priority!

              Most of the 1941 or about 98% appear to have had anneal, sometimes a receiver that had a nice deep DuLite finish applied, then had
              the anneal is very difficult to spot. Years ago in the early 90's I bought sn 128631 from Bob Goldberg in Long Island, it did not have
              any finish, it was white. I had it parkerized (poor job) and it was without any anneal color ! Later around 2008, I found 111709 which
              was from Calif, still with original long spline barrel, nice bore but TE was 6.0, no import stamps. Could not spot the anneal color but
              still suspect. Both Redfield and Rick B. have rifles just a few serial numbers away from this number. I had a WRA RS stock that had
              deep notches cut into the cheek area, as there would little collector interest, I used this stock on 111709. Redfield used a double box
              WRA WB.

                Thanks for sharing the information. So would a single box WB be to early for 112k? Or would that still fall in the RS or double box era?
