Default Interesting Winchester sold on GB

Here is an interesting one that just sold on gunbroker. From Scott Duff, supposed to be an original.

Wow......NIce WRA. Not really surprised it went for that much. Had a lot of supporting documents and cool factoids.

The finish of that rifle is FG quality. I've observed 80-90% correct Win-13s going for less than that. Then again I guess previous owners and where it's been adds some value.

There is a big difference between an 80-90% correct rifle and a rifle like this one that is not only 100% correct, but also 100% original. An 80-90% correct rifle is neither correct nor original, and would be expected to sell for much less than this one. FG quality finish has very little to do with determining the value of an "original" WWII rifle.

Anyone venture an opinion on what this exact rifle might sell for without the provenance/history it carries?

Nice rifle and docs. Too steep for me, but that's the beauty of a free market.

I would have liked to see the internals as well as the trigger group. I think I read somewhere they thought the 11 Follower was changed. I know pictures can look deceiving at times under lighting conditions but who would think this was an original rifle based upon the pictures? MLD $2200-3250

I agree, is the OP rod cut? for example? I would assume not if the rifle is original but I'd like to know for sure if buying an "original" WRA.

Back when I was buying from Scott's sales page. If I saw "original as manufactured" on a rifle or carbine in the description, I clicked the buy button, no hesitation.
