Your comments show that you are extremely selfish. You need to reevaluate your priorities in life.

How original does that rifle appear to be? I can see that some smaller pieces like the sights aren't original, but I don't have a book handy to look up all the major parts that were listed.

I would guess that only the receiver and probably the barrel are original. The op rod looks to be the correct one, but I doubt it is original.

There are some other WRA parts, but they look like later usage than this very early WRA.

weak sauce restoration attempt. in addition to already mentioned, incorrect parts include front and rear sights, rear handguard, follower, follower rod and arm, op rod catch and bullet guide. and probably the firing pin.

not worth a kidney, barely worth a clipped toe nail.

LOL! I suspect that with 8 days left, someone will have to pony up about $12-15K (maybe more) for this one whether original or not. Seems to have quite a collection of early parts. No SA or Post war listed. Would be a rare rebuild example if kept that many WRA parts. To have 202 would be a treat for folks with deep pockets. Most of you guys have organs that are so old you would have to add cash to the trade!

Receiver itself is worth a lot, how much will depend on those bidding and willing to try a restoration on it.

A gas trap is easier to restore than an educational Winchester.

Very nice heel stamping on this one which is hard to find on early Winchester receivers. Good luck to those bidding.

And you won't have to offend someone else (albeit unintentionally) with silly comments about donated organs lol. CMP should do well on this one, as they should. I'm glad I'm not a WRA guy! Best luck all....
I may be a WRA guy but not thatt much of one.

Hey, I resemble that remark. I bid one clouded eye lens.

The thing about a rifle like that is, a guy will spend that kind of money for it and won't tell his wife because he's afraid she'll jump his butt about spending that kind of money. Then when he kicks the bucket, the wife sells the rifle to the kid down the street for $500 dollars. not knowing it was one of the first 200 Winchesters ever produced!!!!!

As far as the wife (and most folks)is/are concerned, it's just another gun.
And she's correct. Trolls and their treasures lol!

Default Winchester Garand

As much as I love Garands, I just can't get my mind around how it could be worth that kind of money. I have one of the first 200 Winchester 1873s ever produced and it's not worth that much!!!! I'm thinking it's like a train wreck, it doesn't make any sense but you just can't look away. Congrats to the winner, I'll follow it to the end.
