    Funny, I was just going through my Springfield forged trigger guards. I'm thinning them out to sell. There are significant font variations in the same drawing number from part to part.

    I don't think that at the time they were making these parts, that they were overly concerned with fonts.

    Pretty interesting. They missed the drawing number . That is also an unusual font for the CM marking .

    Here is another WRA hammer variation; this one marked CM and which is supposed to have been used early in 1942:


    I have drawers filled with the stuff...One of these days I actually need to sell some of it!

    You could have him send you a couple pics.

    I also found this example. I'm unsure whether it's a variation or an oddity.



    Any information on this one, as well as the others in the previous posting, would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Variations in Winchester Hammer Markings

    I examined the Winchester hammers in my collection and found the following variations:









    Unfortunately I no longer have a Winchester hammer with the tooling hole in my collection (for educational order WRAs). I had two of them, believe it or not, and failed to keep the photos that I captured of them. They now reside in a friend's collection. If I find those images I will post them here. Until then, maybe someone else with that type of WRA hammer can post a photo of theirs.

    Thought some folks would like to see these variations.
    Cheers,
