    Well if you don't like what personnel here are pointing out or trying to assist you with something on the rifle in question then you may as well stay on the farm and talk to the Moo cows perhaps they will preen your feathers......

    Also your hammer pin should be installed from left to right not right to left.

    Got it....yes it has been broken but it can't be removed. This is the first early Winchester that I have actually touched and didn't know what the pin was for. I did not see the hammer pin installed wrong and will fix it, thanks.

    Don't try to remove the remaining spring portion from your pin. Early pins are quite desirable regardless of condition but the more complete the better.

    Don't worry, I won't even think about removing it and thanks for the education. When did they change the pin to the headed style?

    Early 1943, I believe.

    Actually, according to the Winchester Log Book entries published in WB III, that date (23 Mar 1943) is the date that your Carbine's receiver was stamped with the serial #, not the date the complete carbine was manufactured.

    I'll check my carbine club newsletters but I think you are correct.
