    Winchester WIN13 Heel Stampings

    I recently examined a late Winchester Win 13 serial number 16378XX. The heel stamping appears very light. To be exact the stamping of U.S. RIFLE CAL. 30 M1 is very light.
    WINCHESTER and TRADEMARK is deeper and readable. Serial number is deep and crisp. It does not appear appear to be a case of worn finish but of light stamping or a worn roll die. Is this common for late Win 13 receivers. Sorry I do not have photos.

    It's not uncommin for Winchester's in general to be light-struck.
