    Questions about my m1.

    2 questions.


    this ls a ‘43 Winchester

    1) Can you tell lf this has been reparked? l was told the barrel ln the chamber should be shiny. lt kinda seems shiny but lm not sure. The metal seems pretty original.


    2) What does the Square P at the bottom of the grip mean? lts also sanded or something which ls odd. l guess lts a replacement stock since lm pretty sure original ones have circle P ln the front of the grip. The person l got lt from said lt was rearsenaled for the Korean War but who knows....oh yeah that’s right, the experts on here know!

    PS: the stock ls beat to hell. Looks like lt went through Omaha about 7 times.

    Any help would be awesome!

    thx

    Looks like a well aged and weatherbeaten original finish on the reciever. The op rod may be a replacement. You almost certainly have a mixmaster that may have come out of a depot rebuild. How is the bore?
    The thief may possess something he stole, but he does not own it.
    The owner has a right to take his property back from the thief.

        Square "P" is a rebuild proof stamp.

              Your rifle went through this process at least once then:
              https://www.americanrifleman.org/art...rand-rebuilds/

              Recommend you leave it as is and see how it shoots. Make sure though the trigger group locks up tight (good fit to the stock) and disassemble and grease it before you try to use it:
