Default 2.43 Winchester Data Sheets?

Anyone have any solid data sheets to share on Winchesterís in the 2.43 million range? Duffs books fall short in that range in my opinion.

I have one Iím trying to get as right as rain.

I’ll second this request. I’ve got one in the same range.

2.37, 2.52, 1.21, and 1.25 would help me...much like quicksilvergoat, Duff has lots of gaps in high component-changeover periods that drop on the numbers I want to work.
Thanks,
Steve

This is a good reference on a 1.28M. It's an article by Scott Duff on an absolutely pristine 1.28M in his collection, and is from a a GCA article a few years back. Just in case you haven't seen it........https://thegca.org/pdfs/FR408Duff.pdf

Default Here's a '44 Win 2.44

Bought this one from the Tulsa Gun Show about 12 years ago that was sold as being an original. Several folks more knowledgeable than me have looked at it and said do not change a thing. It's in the back of my safe so additional photos are unlikely, but here are some when I had more time on my hands. HTH

Very nice rifle!! There looks to be ghost numbers on the receiver heel. An old rack number maybe. I can’t believe it could be anything else. Looks like someone put some time into them!

Thank you. Yes, I believe so. You can just make out the 4 to the left for a older rack number of 45.
