    three digit serial numbered Winchester

    There is a photo of a three digit Winchester on page 45 of the January 2020 issue of "The American Rifleman" from an article by Canfield on "The Mystique of Winchester M1s"

    You would think that Canfield would use a better photo to represent an early Winchester M1 for the NRA article ?

    Here is a better photo showing the receiver logo of the same rifle sn 100931 Click image for larger version

      Someday I'd love to add a nice 3-digit WRA receiver to my collection.

      You might be better off to buy or trade into a nice restoration. Most receivers (E.O.) are in the 3K to 4K price range now plus the WRA RS no trap still has to be around 3K plus depending on cartouche. Then it also depends if your restoring a early E.O. or a late E.O. for parts which changed during this period.
