Default Carbine gun rack dimensions

I have a carbine barracks rack that I'm restoring but it's missing the 2 locking bars. It has the wood on the top with the slots. Is there someone out there that can provide me with either the correct measurements and or a few photos with a yard stick beside them or at least point me in the right direction.

I want to build them as close to correct as possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Joe

If it's a 20 Carbine rack....

I believe this is the number you need:

FSN 1095-714-0329, Ord. Part No. 7140329

I'll look around,


Info from Bill Ricca:

Does this help ?

Joe, my barracks rack has the metal top so it might not be exactly like yours or the ones in the thread that I noted. Message me with the measurements you still need if you are unable to get them from the thread and I will try to help.

Thanks for the replies guys. It gets me started for sure. I really appreciate the help. Mine is the one that holds 20 and has a wooden separator at the top. I bought it from a member here I believe last year. I'm in the process of stripping an old lime green paint job from it. Again thank you. It's just like the one Charlie posted in his second link.

After going over the links and links within links I think I have what I need. Many thanks to you guys for your time and effort.

JC,
JP is a highly valued member of the Carbine Collectors Forum.
I and many others deeply rely on him when it comes to digging for the Specs.

Is that Winchester still running for you ?
Remember the video you shared of your buddies gun shop security camera while it was being robbed ?

I still laugh at how brazen they were!!

It is and looks good while doing it. LOL. I finally crossed the 23 carbine mark and would love to have 20 of them sitting it that barracks rack. I need the space.

My gun shop buddy sadly passed away a few months ago. He owned multiple buildings and houses that he rented out and thanks to Uncle Sam and the non eviction order his renters quit paying their rent. After a year of that and selling every tangible asset he had, he began to suffer from deep depression, quit eating and literately starved himself to death. This Covid has affected many lives in far more ways than an inconvenience.

Just as a PSA on the small arms racks. Carbine Club Newsletter 143-2 from October 1988 warns of the barrel rest boards (wood) somehow permanently lightens the parkerized finish where the barrel rests on the board.
It was suggested to add cosmoline or grease to the wood to prevent this.

Anyone with a rack may want to try adding felt or some barrier to the wood to keep the barrel away from the wood.

The article also mentions that the buttplates tend to rust where it touches the steel floor. I suspect this may be a place where condensation forms with changing temperatures and humidity.
