    Won bid on 13941

    Pictures were poor. No internal pics. No closeup of lockbar,barrel,oprod,bolt, Description states no barrel markings on side. I hope it is a 1940! LOL. Very nice heel stamp, Looks like orig color receiver will try for pics. https://auctions.thegunrunner.com/lo...9-world-war-ii

      Barrel could be Buffalo Arms or Marlin, the 0 marked un-modified op rod rod is quite rare to find now and worth alot now

        Could be the barrels mentioned or it could be an after market barrel. I thought the 0 marked op-rods were slant cut? I don’t have my GT book with me but I thought that was a feature on those. The clip is nice, to bad they sanded and finished the stock. Hard to tell from the photo but it looks like the receiver could be original finish. At least it does not appear to be annealed.

          I was kidding about the o mark!!. I have no idea what is inside. In post states there are no internal pics. Looks to be orig finish. BUT stock looks like DAS. So rifle is a mixer, hope for site seal. and short fork. Who knows

            The rev 0 op rods are all slant cut, bought this rev 0 marked on top at a yard sale many years ago, it was wired together with a rev 9 op rod. At the time, I had never seen a revision 0 marked on top
            (there are variations). I put it on a early rifle and took a 35mm black & white and sent the photo to Scott Duff who placed the photo in his book. The bottom marked rev 0 came from Dave McClain in a trade later on. Click image for larger version

                I know, value is the receiver. Has grooved clip. Not sure what is inside. Early T Guard too. Poor pics. Maybe a site seal. Can hope.

                    Those rear hand guard repairs - not in the US Ordnance Shop Manual that I own ? some claim USMC did repairs like this but more likely another country !

                      Looks like the repairs are very well done. Most likely a keeper on upper guard.I shall see.

                        Here is a photo of a Buffalo Arms revision 13 barrel on a 16K receiver. Years ago I bought a 80K rifle with a revision 19 BA barrel from a friend of my father who was in the USMC Seabees during WW2.. This rifle is in exc condition, doubt it was used much after rebuild. None of the Buffalo Arms M1 rifle barrels were dated. Buffalo Arms also made M1 carbine barrels, 30 & 50 cal BMG barrels plus mg parts too Click image for larger version

                            I really think these are US repairs. why would another country make that repair! I could see a Private, or a Lance Corporal spending xtra time on that HG, not 1, nt2, but 3, biscuit repairs!, Very distinctive repair.
