Default WTK 6.5 mil Winchester Configuration

I purchased a 6.5 Million Winchester. It is really in amazing condition. My carbine books and news letters are long packed away. It appears original it is low wood, push safety, adjustable sight, dulite round bolt which I am guessing is correct. Not sure on the type 3 band. Is the gun late enough for that to be original? Opinions?

Yes, a type 3 band is correct for a 6.5. The type 3 bands winchester used have a ‘C’ on the left side near the swivel. It would also have the adjustable rear sight. Post some photos so we can take a look at the parts.

Yes it is C marked. It is from an estate a old NRA sales gun I think it's unfired. I was shocked it has a Winchester oiler in the stock. Did the factory supple them in the gun? Under 100 layers of dust it has a few stock scratches but everything seems to be WRA. They also have a Remington Rand in the Rand box with the NRA shipping info pasted onto the Rand box. Unreal. They are getting a little crazy on the price for that one.

I used to know a guy in Ohio.......

Yes to C marked.
Hopefully it's the High C, stamped as stated above even with the middle of the swivel.
The C stamped ones lower than the swivel I believe were post War.

Charlie!!!! Yeah it's me. Forgot more then I remember about these silly little rifles. Still have my hoard. Patiently waiting for a little slower time in life. Every now and then I jam another in the safe and slam the door!
