Default Winchester disappointment

I found a 1942 Winchester, that had been converted into a "Tanker". Price was good, but it would not take a clip of ammo.
I was going to buy it and repair it.
But then on further inspection the Heat lot and batch numbers were off!!
R 29
D-28291-17.
All my resources say this is a Springfield Code.
I am so disappointed.

I am so sorry! Can you post photos of the receiver so we can look at to see what this reweld looks like?

Edit: actually, did you catch it was a reweld before you bought? In that case, Congrats!

"R 29
D-28291-17"

I think the drawing number is for 1942 Springfield.

What is R 29?

Maker I guess is Winchester.

Might be a welded Winchester heal, and a Springfield front.

Pretty clear where it was welded together.

I can make you a good deal on a welded WRA barrel. WRA stub on the back end that is welded to the front of a 1903 barrel that has been machined to accept the Garand gas cylinder and lower band.

Friend that is why you look and research before you buy. Did the seller say Winchester???? if so he's not telling the truth...its a good welded receiver but as noted in the pics obvious its welded.

I was thinking that was a pretty good job as far as the welding. The discoloration shows with the flash but a good example on why the numbers matter.

I would use it as a wall hanger.

No, a close Friend of Mine owns it. He had never shot it, didn't really know much about it.
I didn't pay for it. We were going to do some trading. I informed Him. He was upset, as I was. He paid over 1K for several years ago, for what is a wall hanger.
