At a local gun shop I jumped on a nice Bavarian Winchester Carbine.
Here are the Details (according to Craig Riesch's book M1 Carbines, Wartime prod. 6th Edition)

Receiver type IB, (spring tube) Winchester Serial no. 11182xx
Barrel, type I, W, Winchester proof mark
Rear sight, type III, J.A.O. 7160060
Bolt, type II, SG
Firing pin, type I, W
Extractor, type III, W.I.
Ejector, type I
Barrel band, type IA, unmarked
Front sight, type I, L
Operating slide, type III SG
Operating slide spring housing, type II, unmarked
Trigger housing, type III, SG
Hammer, type III, W (Winchester)
Trigger, type II, LT-Q
Sear, type II, .U.
Mag catch, type IIA, EP-Q
Safety, type III, unmarked
Stock, type I, IO and flaming bomb into sling well, no ordnance acceptance marking visible
Butplate, probably IBM
Recoil plate, type II, DI
Handguard, type I, SG

Finish: The Receiver appears blued and has a dull shine. Barrel appears also blued but glossy. The trigger housing has the light copper color. I refer to Mr. Mock’s Bavarian carbines site, where the reason will be described in detail.
Unusual is the fact that the Carbine has not typical Bavarian marking. There are no evidences on stock, receiver, recoil plate and trigger housing that there was ever a marking that has been removed later. The Stock was sanded but has no rebuild marking.
Another strange marking is the SG on the handguard. There is no evidence that there was ever a R (SG)
The sling did not came with the carbine. It is a later type C with a darker green colored webbing.

Nice find. The front sight is one made by Lyman for Winchester. Not a lot of them were used so they are on the uncommon side. Nice carbine that appears to have not a lot of late parts used on a rebuild. Is the rear sight staked in place?
