Just wondering if anyone familiar with PCMR 94’s have seen other front barrel bands like this one. It says Turner and Seymour, Torrington CT.
The owner said with the barrel band manufactured in CT as well, he feels it most likely was outsourced by Winchester locally with these guns being made in a rush for WWII and requiring slings. Any info appreciated.

Rick,

Winchester did not “outsource” slings for the PCMR contract.  Instead, it was the Canadian military armorers that outsourced the slings for the 2,500 PCMR Carbines they had purchased from Winchester to be shipped to British Columbia.  Additionally, Winchester was not ever in a “rush” to fill the PCMR contract.  Production of the Model 94 as already very robust in the early months of 1942.  Of the (623) PCMR Winchesters that I have documented thus far, (519) of them were manufactured in the months April – July 1942.  Winchester’s total production for the year 1942 was 29,882 and the year ended on August 23, 1942.  Total production for the year 1941 was 53,748.  If you add them up, Winchester manufactured 83,620 Model 94/64 in less than 2-full years… the 2,500 for the Canadians was just a drop in the bucket.

The owner just advised he found an article on the PCMR written by a Ken Showers which was in “The Collector”(summer 1998 issue) showing 3 types of sling mounts and his was one of them.
I will forward the additional info you provided onto him which I’m sure he’ll appreciate. Thank you Bert.

Rick, all the bands I’ve seen had a crowned stove bolt with a square nut, You”re showing a crowned stove bolt with a hex nut, it may be proper , I can’t say.
