Check out this "demilled" receiver on EBay. Does this really qualify as demilled? I see no reason why it won't work as is. What do you think?

It is a "nice" early Type 1b spring tube with no adjustable sight craters. Look for it to be resurrected someday. Maybe I'll write down the SN...just in case.

Now there you guys go again. There is nothing really ah wrong with that receiver that a little bit of say some glue and epoxy along with a welder can't fix. Then of course you need a milling machine and someone who knows how to use it BUT once it's done you would have a genuine Winchester receiver that will have to have the face of a barrel taken down to fit the barrel to it. So I guess you will need a lathe too and someone to run it. BUT after that you will have to be very careful when trying to get the barrel tight so you don't break your new welded and epoxied receiver. BUT once your done it should look like new if the Parkerizing takes to the welded metal that is. So it would only cost oh say $400 to $500 to repair the receiver and just remember you get a free spring tube with it too. Oh what a deal.
