Default Thoughts on my Winchester service grade.

Well..........got my first Winchester Garand a few months back and wanted some input on what it's rebuild history might be. It's a service grade serial #2479376 with the Winchester barrel still (MW 2,TE 3). It has a real nice set of USGI birch wood (no cartouche) but all the other parts on it are SA WWII period. The op rod is a D35382 6 SA without the relief cut, Bolt is D28287-12SA, trigger housing is D28290-12-SA. Even has a SA forged/milled wide slot bullet guide. I heard in the forum that all the recent Winchester service grades were Anniston rebuilds but again, mine has no identifying cartouche........not even a P in a circle. I'm slightly perplexed with the amount nice WWII era SA parts as well. Any thoughts as to it's rebuild origin? I'd post pictures but is just your average, nice looking Garand with a birch stock.

Stock could’ve been put on by CMP.

There are no marks on the receiver legs and it did cross my mind that the CMP might have put the stock on. Even though the wood is in great shape it's definitely not new wood. Looks the the normal birch Garand rebuild stocks from the 60's.
