    Any Opinions on these Follower Arms?

    The text and photos below are posted on behalf of Mr. Robert Seccombe (RCS), whom is an advanced collector here on our site:

    I am attempting to identify these follower arms as to the time period and who manufactured them.
    Note they are beveled on the outside legs under the follower arm pin hole.
    I have some ideas, but would be interested in other opinions.

        The bevel is pretty large. Looks more like the WRA versus the SA.

          I was thinking the same thing, but then I looked a little closer and noticed that the bevel on each arm is not really sharp like my WRA examples. Also, the bevel doesn't appear to come down quite all the way to the half-way point so now I'm thinking SA. Hmm....... LOL

            I thought the smaller bevel with beveled legs were SA? WRA do not have bevels on the legs. Here are SA double bevel BLs, Small single bevel BLs, WRA large bevel NBLs, SA Flat face...I thought the unnumbered second single bevel to be SA, comments? Click image for larger version

              IMO 3rd from the left is WRA

                After talking with Charles Redfield and checking the article in GSR that include actual size line drawings of ALL the Winchester follower arms by Mr Redfield, it is my opinion that these two follower arms in the photos above are for the late Win 13 production rifles

                  For an additional data point. I went thru my reference files and notes and found these follower arm pictures from a WIN13 (Apr 45) that was in the WRA Ref Collection. The bevel appears to match a normal WRA follower arm with no bevel legs.

                    Very interesting.......WIN-13s sure are unique. Seems to me that they're very different from the standard WRA rifle that so many are used to.

                    What would be the reason as to why they're is so many differences between WIN-13 rifles and the earlier rifles (minus the EO rifles, of course)?
