Winchester M1 Garand, .30-06, serial number 1066xx. This is a pre WW2 receiver, manufactured May 1941. No import marks. Bolt body, trigger housing and trigger guard are the right types for the receiver. The hammer and most other parts are not Winchester, or not pre-WWII, all parts are detailed below.
We test fired the Garand and it performed well, cycling through a full eight round clip and ejecting the clip at the end. You can see a video of our test firing at our YouTube channel FernwoodArmoryTV.
-Receiver: marked “D28291-2 W.R.A.” on leg. Excellent condition, absolutely no pitting. Probably not original finish. Has rough machining marks, typical for Winchester.
-Barrel: new, unmarked, we did not install. Perfect condition. Headspace measures exactly right. ME: 0, TE: 0
-Op rod: marked “D35382 W.R.A.”
-Op rod catch: marked “PB”, Beretta. Op rod and bolt cycle freely by tilting when everything is assembled except main spring and hammer.
-Bullet guide: wide slot milled type with rough finish and punch mark
-Clip latch: unmarked, round front, rough machine marks
-Follower: marked “12”
-Follower arm: no bevel, unmarked
-Follower rod: long fork, riveted, unmarked
-Bolt: Winchester, marked “D28287-1 W.R.A.”, with hole in underside
-Firing pin: half round, marked “BMB”, Breda
-Elevation knob: postwar, marked “FZR”
-Windage knob: postwar, marked “DRC”
-Rear sight base: unmarked
-Rear sight cover: new, blued (the old one was loose, and a common type)
-Rear sight aperture: SA or WRA double track, unmarked
-Trigger housing: WRA, marked “D28290-W.R.A.”, small pad, cloverleaf hole.
-Trigger guard: milled/forged type, marked “C46025W.R.A.”
-Trigger: late type, no extra hole, unmarked. Some trigger group work (stoning) has been done by a previous owner, limited to the sides of the hammer, safety, etc. – sear and hammer hook surfaces have not been changed. Pull is 4.75 lbs
-Hammer spring plunger: has wings
-Hammer spring housing: unfinished
-Hammer: marked “C46008-3 SA”, Springfield
-Safety: marked “C46015-4 W.R.A.”. The tip has been cut off, most likely so that the safety can be applied with the hammer forward (and it’s a whole lot easier to engage/disengage in general), a common wartime practice. It now blocks the trigger only, not the trigger and hammer. The new owner can decide whether or not to replace this early/pre WWII part.
-Gas cylinder: wide sight platform, flat on top of rear ring marked “H” – could be early SA. Punch mark on bayonet lug. Finish in very good condition. Gas cylinder has no sideplay on barrel, important for accuracy.

-Gas cylinder lock: Beveled front non-grenade launcher type,
-Gas cylinder lock screw: postwar cross slot, grenade launcher valve type, some
faint marking mostly polished off before refinish
