I see people throw Win-13 around a lot, trying to figure out what I'm missing.

Eye of the beholder I guess.

Part of it is that they were the last Winchesters built. Part of it is the rarity. There were only about 39,000 making it one of the least common variations of the WWII M1s. And part of is that the serial numbers are duplicate overrun of the Springfield serial numbers. Making it possible to own both the WRA and a SA with same number. (I am looking for SA #1629605, by the way.) The rifle had other rare items about it. It was the only WRA's with double slotted poppet gas plug. It was the only WRA with a straight cut flat sided op-rod.

I would rather have an original condition Win-13, but failing that, I am happy with my Win-13 M1D.

I didn't say being Win-13 made it more valuable. I said "CMP auctions are a lot short term but seem to me a good investment over say a 5 year term"

Thanks
Thanks but I have one myself. I actually paid more for it than the Win-13 so perhaps you should be paid the $250

I once had an M1D like that but I decided to use mine. Much more enjoyable than something all sealed up in paper and plastic!

What would you do with it all sealed up like that?

Keep it in a dark, secure, climate controlled environment. The buyer who keeps it packaged up isn't buying it to shoot, they're buying it as a collectible investment, or just because they can afford it, and they're aren't very many around anymore!

The guy I purchased mine from had at least one more, all sealed up. He may have even had 3 total. They came from DCM lottery purchases back in the 90s. Pretty neat but I just couldn't stand to keep it all sealed up.

A pretty good $650 investment!
