    Excuse me, but why do you assume that I want to sell it?
    I have been looking for this rifle for 6 years, I have seen 3.
    This one was made in 1943, the guy said.
    The rules here in Norway is that it's almost impossible to get an semi-auto rifle (live) so I'll rather have a deac one than no rifle at all.

    'You' as in the current owner (not yourself)-apologies for the confusion-pity to deactivate but from what you state you would have little choice.

    It still has the ww2 lock bar sight. Does he have any pics of the barrel with the op rod pulled back? it will have the barrel date of manufacture there. gun laws suck, having to ruin a perfectly good example like that, but like the others said, better that then getting destroyed. That's a beauty of a rifle though, and Winchester did only make them during ww2. And that's a cool bayonet, I've only seen pictures of them before, wasn't sure they were real lol

    If this rifle has its original Winchester barrel there will not be a date on the barrel as Winchester did not put a date on them. Only Springfield Armoury dated them. In the 1950's when other manufacturers started to make the Garand they also put dates on the barrels. Looking at the finish on the gun and the lack of an Winchester acceptence mark on the stock i suspect the rifle has gone through at least one rebuild. JT

    Yeah he told me it doesn't have all the original parts of the Winchester, it has a few parts from a springfield.

    That would be an early August 1943 manufacture, hope it works out for you
