    Front sight, has the finger nail mark with swirls.

    Bolt, unmarked, blued.
    Barrel, W 4-5 inches down and Winchester proof 7 inches down.
    Swivel & band, unmarked.
    Mag catch W in well.
    T Housing, 1/2 w and 2 other letters R side rear, Trigger Guard has a X on bottom

    Looks like the dies moved when they were trying to stamp that carbine. The serial is an overstamp. Probably done to correct a bad stamping on the first try. I've seen this a couple of times and not just on Winchesters. Stock markings look legit. The X on the bottom of the trigger guard is pretty normal although it could have been any letter. I've seen many different letters stamped there. The only thing that bothers me is the finish. It looks like it was reparked. What makes me think so is that none of the stampings show bare metal at the bottom and some were stamped AFTER the carbine was parked. Otherwise, it looks good. Would love to see some shots of the internals.

    The T code you posted pics of on Gunboards looks refinished too. The color on it is closer, though. It presents well and crisply but the color still doesn't look correct.
    What do you make of the apparent punch mark on the barrel near the WP logo? There's also a small divot on the right of the rear dove tail which is where an adjustable sight sometimes contacts on install or removal.

    That's is not a punch mark, it's a ding. I don't know what to make of the other mark under the rear sight, under magnification it looks like small dings in a line.

    Ok. I've got a late proofed Winchester barrel with the WP visible above the high C bayonet band, and it has a very distinct punch mark. It's in between the WP and W. You wouldn't mistake this one for a ding. Haven't seen that on any other later or late Win barrels.

    Additional pictures added...hope you like them. The friction pin I had never seen before but after monkeying with it I can see why it was eliminated! The best way I found was to start the pin in the housing then use a punch to line thing up and slide it right in. I can just imagine what a GI went through at night! I don't believe what direction it goes in matters as both L & R holes are the same size.

    Assuming that you are referring to the early trigger housing pin when you say friction pin, the early pin with the spring was originally designed to stay attached to the early trigger housing and not be fully removed, yours has had the end of the spring portion cut off. Page all the way down on the link below.
    Also your hammer pin should be installed from left to right not right to left.

    It doesn't look cut off to me....there is still a tip there. The fact is that it is an original part. The whole rifle has original parts. I am done with this forum as all you guys want to do is find faults in a very nice rare Carbine. The rifle is 76 years old. At one time this was a respected Forum. So long.
