Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Winchester -- MINT US M1 Carbine WWII 44 Not a rework

• Please note someone has stolen my first few photos and partial description of this Winchester and is attempting to sell it on GunBroker right now. See to view it. I contacted GB but they have not ended that auction yet. I hope the unsuspecting top bidder at GB does not send any money! If you know how to contact any of those bidders, please let them know and continue to be on the lookout for other similar rip-offs. Thanks to those Auction Arms bidders who contacted me about this. ***** I am happy to say the other auction has now been ended. I have no details and can only assume GB took it off line. Hopefully, they can do something about the seller. • This is a near mint original US M1 Carbine made by Winchester in 1944. This is not an arsenal re-done carbine as is so common. This rifle that made it thorough WWII without being issued to a combat unit and remained in near mint condition. Yes, it was fired but appears to have been very well cared for and then immediately placed in a rack. • The wood shows only minor dents and dings and has the original oil finish and has not been refinished. The fore-end is the correct flat-bottom Winchester type. The markings are nice and clear with no sanding or “tinkering”. As you can see, the wood happens to have a very attractive grain, especially at the butt. Note the very small “W” proof in the sling channel and the Winchester ordnance wheel which are correct for this year Winchester M1 Carbine. There are no cracks to the stock or handguard. The handguard is the correct type with 4 rivets and a small “W” proof as shown in the close up photos. • All of the metal parts that should be marked with a Winchester component proof are so marked. See photos. All of the components are the correct type. As an example, the band is the correct type for the 1944 Winchester, etc. See photos. The magazine is an Underwood contract with a single “U”. This is the one that came in the rifle and I have left it as I found it. • The wear patterns, proofs and finish are as issued and correct. • There is a minor amount of blue wear to the blued bolt and a touch of wear to the high-edges on the Parkerized parts. Many feel it is fine to “up-grade” or “restore” a US military rifle with original parts. I could have easily found a mint Winchester bolt and slipped it in. However, I purchased the rifle as it is and have left it 100% un-touched. Of course, if you wish to put a mint bolt in, go right ahead. • The 1944 production Winchester M1 carbine of this serial range was issued with the adjustable sight. This is the correct sight with the “H” in the shield. • The winning bidder will get my phone number to ensure everything will go smoothly. Please write me directly at for the full set or with any questions you may have. • If you want a good, un-touched Winchester M1 Carbine for your collection, this rifle will make you very happy. Thanks for looking and good luck.

Payment and Shipping Instructions:
• This item is sold as a collectible firearm and is not sold as a “shooter”. You must have this firearm certified for safe firing a licensed gunsmith before firing. NO warranty as to the safe firing condition of this or any other firearm I offer is implied or expressed. • I allow 30 days to inspect your purchase which should be ample time to decide if it is satisfactory. All of my online firearms sales have resulted in positive feedbacks. Additionally, I have 2600 positive feedbacks on eBay under the same seller name, chrissiler, with only one negative from a bidder who actually ripped me off-the swine. The bottom line is that if you don’t like the item for any reason, just return it to me in the same condition and I will refund your purchase price. • This is a post-1898 firearm so a dealer or collector (C &R) FFL is required. Shipping inside the US only. Foreign bidders are welcome to bid but must arrange for a broker to have the item shipped outside the US. I will only ship to a US address. • Bidder to pay postage and insurance which will come from the UPS web site. No extra fees for boxes, etc. • I will accept a money order, bank draft or PayPal. However, if you wish to use PayPal, please include 1.5% extra on top of the total payment. PayPal charges the seller 3% so I think it is only fair to ask you to split that cost with me if you wish to use their service. • Please see my other gun auctions now on Auction Arms.

Questions for Users
    Q:  Chris-- Check out this link-- http://www.***GunAuction******GunAuction***/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=129286552 WTF???? J. Cooper Dallas, Texas 05/16/2009
        A:  Hello J. Cooper Thank you very much from me and on behalf of all honest bidders and sellers! The auction you describe on Auction Arms is indeed a fraudulent listing. The rifle is obviously the same one I own and am selling here on GB. The photos and description are exactly the same. I contacted Auciton Arms and hope they will be able to shut down that auction before it closes and the bidder sends any money. Kind regards and thank you again. Chris 05/16/2009
    Q:  is this a fake sale??? The reason I ask the same gun is for sale on ***GunAuction******GunAuction*** #129286552 05/16/2009
        A:  Hello. Thank you for asking. Yes, I am aware of that auction from an earlier email from another Auction Arms user-take a look at it right above this message. There is a fraud underway with the listing on ***GunAuction***. That seller is trying to rip someone off by using my first few photos and the first part of my description to sell a firearm he does not own. I have contacted ***GunAuction*** and hopefully they will end that auction and kick the seller off. That listing is a one day auction and GB may not be working on the weekends. If you know a way to contact bidders on that one, please let them know. I tried but couldn't figure out how to do it. We all need to be aware of these kinds of frauds. Please let legitimate sellers know right away in case you find the same thing happening in the future on another firearm. Anyway, I own the rifle and will handle the sale properly like all my other firearms auctions in the past. Best of luck if you decide to bid. Chris 05/16/2009
    Q:  Howdy.....looks like someone is also selling your Winchester carbine on ***GunAuction*** too. Item number is 129286552. You may want to make a complaint. K 05/16/2009
        A:  Hello. Thank you for letting me know. I was informed earlier in the day and did contact ***GunAuction***. The seller on GB is obviously a thief. Take a look at the emails at the bottom of my auction. Best of luck, Chris 05/16/2009
