The receiver does have a really nice heel stamp. I recently purchased another Win-13 with an original WRA barrel, but it's receiver heel is more beat up and not as nice color. I'm struggling with which one I like better. :>)
Jeff,
A nice score on two really nice rifles.
Reports like this makes it hard to stay away so I guess another trip down this Saturday is in order.
