    a few early parts

    looks like the original finish on the numbered lower band, revision number added after 7k


    the numbered stacking swivel - never quite certain if original or fake. Anyone advice would be appreciated Click image for larger version

    Love a numbered lower band. I have C-46000 on my Gas Trap Build and 2x C-46000-0 in my Spares. The nunbered stacking Swivel was something I could never find but was not actively looking as it was far too early for my build.

      Early operating rod stamps. years ago there was a man in Utah who would remove the Winchester markings and re-stamp the SA drawing number. A few of these fakes got out on the market without detection by collectors. This man was know for his discovery of a gas trap receiver and barrel in a salvage yard in Utah in 1965, not in the best condition but still an original gas trap barrel & receiver. Restored and sold in 1994 and later sold in 2009 for a reported 19K. the serial number is 4497

ID:	36025 faked in Utah years ago. They look good and the drawing number is excellent work. The clue to being fake is the inside bevels next to the ears are missing. Last photo shows the fake with straight ears next to an original later front sight. Click image for larger version

          I'd love to find a fake or reproduction Front Sight with the number or straight ears.
