Manufactured in 1947 during the transition period (late 1945-51).

Hooded ramp front sight and adjustable sporting rear sight on a barrel marked with the Winchester legend on the left side.

Excellent. The rifle retains 95% original blue finish showing a smooth brown patina on the buttplate and the bolt handling thinning to a gray. The stock is also excellent with a few minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
