@EightyDeuce: Yes that's a Bullnose.
@WTMR: Fully Agree, stock should be repaired. You know what their worth.
@Deldriver: I see finish wear to the rear of the front sight on the leftside of the barrel also.
...Maybe possible someone tried out a Flash Hider? If not..... IDK.

@Joe375: The cracked stock.
I'm wondering if someone attached a Bi-Pod (I had a NPM done just like this) The Torqued down nut and bolt caused a crack under the forearm and had rubbed finish off on the bottom of the barrel from contact.

April 12, 1943 would have been when the Serial Number was stamped, according to Larry Ruth's section on 'Summing up the Winchester Carbine Program' page 1131.
So very possible it was completed and accepted by late ~May of 43, if all went well and it not being set back to be reworked.

"Would it be possible by the SN range that this weapon could have been on the invasion of Saipan?"

According to the estimated acceptance date, it would have been in the hands of Ordnance / Supply to have been crated up and sent to the PTO well before Saipan.
The Actual Battle of Saipan was June 15, 1944 - July 9, 1944.

Thx for sharing your Carbine,

Living Free because of those that serve.....
