That is common on Winchester CM parts. It is not backwards. The stamp had a chip broken out of the back side of the C that makes it look backwards. Easy to see in person, but hard to see in a photo.

interesting rifle. It looks like there is a possibility that the gas cylinder lock may have been replaced too Do you have a front shot that makes the front bevel cuts viewable? Thank you for sharing your rifle!

Was on Saipan last year as part of a military historical tour. Several good war museums there that have some Garands along with other gear, both U.S. and Japanese. I think the last Japanese soldier came out of his cave and surrendered in the 70's. Local Chommorro's did most of the hunting for the holdouts, and pictures I saw showed they carried Garands and carbines. Great place to visit, even after the typhoon.

Thanks. I was surprised that they survived in decent shape after being in a tropical climate for so long
