    Winchester s/n 100,001 photos

    A few recent photos of number 1 taken by the owner posted on another website. The photos of the follower and slide are different from the original data sheet prepared when s/n 100,001 was examined: the data sheet indicates a short nose slide and both the follower and slide in a natural color. The parts in the photos appear correct for the rifle Click image for larger version  Name:	DSCN3699.JPG Views:	0 Size:	3.14 MB ID:	30592 Click image for larger version  Name:	DSCN3701.JPG Views:	0 Size:	3.21 MB ID:	30593 Click image for larger version  Name:	DSCN3702.JPG Views:	0 Size:	2.98 MB ID:	30594

    That for sharing Robert. That's some very cool color pics of 100,001.

    It's interesting that 100,001 has high ribs and 100,055 & 100,075 have low ribs. I've also seen a unserialized test mule with low guide ribs. I wonder how many receivers Winchester made with low guide ribs before they were changed.

      Paul, I do not believe s/n 100,001 was ever proofed or test fired ? Wonder what serial numbers were at the test firing where John Garand is firing a Winchester. They must have recorded the serial numbers

        Brad might have that information. That would be interesting to know.

          Photo was taken Jan 10, 1941 so those Winchester M1 rifles could be two and three digit serial numbers too
