Do a search for Winchester M1 carbine... that will answer your questions.

AnswerThe question was about the M1 Garand 30-06, not the .30 carbine. No it was not manufactured, but toward the end of WW2 some M1 rifles were modified in the field with the Browning 20-round box magazine. The American M14 and Italian BM-59 rifles were copies of the Garand action with an external box magazine, scaled down to fire the .308 Winchester (7.62mm NATO). AnswerWinchester produced the M1 Garand during the WWII years only.

How do you identify a Winchester rifle by serial number 46613?

The model number of the rifle should be stamped into the barrel by the Winchester name. If the barrel doesn't have the Winchester name, the model of the gun, and the caliber it's chambered for stamped into it, it's not the barrel that came with the gun. This will complicate the identification and you'll need to post a picture to get an answer. The serial number on a Winchester rifle is only unique to the particular model. Pretty much every model rifle Winchester ever made had one unit with that serial number. It could be anything from a lever action 1895 to a model 12 pump shot gun. If you're have both the model number and serial number, go to the website listed below to find the date it was made. Scroll down to "Related Links" and click on "Arms Collector".

Was the Winchester Model 1895 Sporting rifle offered with flip up rear sights?

I have an 1895 in 30-06 that has Redfield peep sights on it. The site is adjustable for range and windage. I know the sights were on it before 1960. I do not know if the came with the rifle because serial numbers indicate it was made in 1921 I have in my collection a reprinted catalog of Winchester repeating arms co.that was printed in June of 1896.This catalog shows no flip up sights offered from the factory at that time.(Rifle was new in 1895).My father in law has in his possession A Winchester model 1895 sporting rifle in 38-72Win caliber with a serial number that puts production in the year 1905.His rifle has a side mounted elevating peep sight that was added to the rifle in 1907.I do not believe that Winchester ever offered a flip up peep sight for this rifle.Redfield,Marbles and Lyman I believe were the 3 main suppliers of after market sights for the Model 1895 rifle.

Try, they have a large supply of odd gun parts. I recently bought a 'W' shaped spring that is inside that magazine for 8 bucks from this supplier, and my rifle works better than ever. They could have the whole magazine and screws if it is missing from your firearm. Hope this helps.

What is the best 270 cal rifle to buy?

"Best" rifle is a very subjective term, and can open up a LONG discussion- different people will have different favorites- based on their experiences and personal preferences. Winchester, Browning, Ruger, Remington, and Savage have all made .270 cal rifles, along with a host of European makers. You may love the Winchester Mdl 70, and I may love my Browning BAR, and Fred will think his Accu-trigger Savage is the best rifle ever made. Strange thing is- we would ALL be right. A benchrest rifle will be too heavy to carry hunting, an autoloader may be a great hunting rifle in Virgina, but not allowed in Pennsylvania, etc. There is no single mainstream gun maker I would shy away from, and if you find the rifle that fits your shoulder, and your wallet, you will be convinced that THAT rifle is the BEST 270 ever made. Good luck in your search- and have fun searching.
