If your carbine has a 2nd serial # struck in front or behind the rear sight, it's a factory job. When the adjustable sights were added to ,mostly all, the carbines and the serial # could not be readily read, the # was re-struck in FRONT or in the very REAR of the new, longer sight.
Winchester moved the "Winchester logo from above the serial # to below the serial #.
I've got a bottom name Win. and a Q.H.W. with the serial # re-stamped in front of the rear sight.
