I has the 2 groove sleeved 03A3 barrel too. Picture of the muzzle shows the distinctive crown of those barrels.

Lets see, a Winchester serial and "D28291 27" ( Springfield Armory) drawing number on the receiver. I'd say "WELDED" for sure according to what you guys taught me and what my books tell me. And it's not a very good looking one at that.
I e-mailed the last guy who had a very suspect Garand for sale on GB. It's ya'll's turn!!

There was a May '43 serial number with revision 43 recently sold on GB. I didn't catch it in time to notify anyone. Would have been reluctant to do that anyway, I suppose.
The rifle was a nicely done commercial repark and commercial wood. Not enough pics to see any welding evidence. To the seller's credit, he did show the full serial number and the revision number very clearly. Maybe he didn't know it was a welded receiver. There were several bids and the rifle went for over $1200.

Calif-Steve,
I tend to use the term "re-weld" also because that's what they were called at first and I don't handle change very well. I also believe that an inexperienced collector or shooter would pick up on the idea that something questionable had been done to the rifle if called a "re-weld" whereas "welded" sounds as if that might be a viable method of manufacture. Same semantic problem exists for "import" versus "re-import".

The crown definitely is not M1.
I feel sorry for the buyer of this one.

Very sorry for the buyer is right. "Re-weld" to me, but it is indeed weld job.

It's evidently shootable since there's copper fouling in the muzzle.
