There seems to be some anomalies here. What can you tell me about this rifle? Thanks

Here are your photos. You were trying to post them in a format (.heic) that was not compatible with the web site. You want the photos to be .jpg

The carbine has a mail order replacement barrel on it, the stock has been replaced with a shotgun butt stock and the saddle ring has been removed. That is what I saw with a quick look.

Thats what I thought. How did you know it was not a factory barrel replacement? Can you tell from the stamps on the barrel in front of the receiver who did the barrel replacement? The fit of the stock looks pretty darn good to me. 

I’m not considering selling it, but how would one value it?

I’m looking at another SRC later today. I’ll post some pictures.  I’d appreciate any feedback on that one before i make a final decision.

The P in the oval is marked on barrel that were sent out to be fit by a outside gun smith. The stock normally had a carbine style buttplate so to have a shotgun butt plate the stock had to be replaced, also the gun has a swivel eye on the front but not on the stock plus the fit of the stock to the gun is not up to Winchester standards.

The barrel is a 1930s production piece.  The butt stock is from a 1945 – 1947 production Carbine, and the forend stock is from a 1951 (or later) production Carbine.  What you have is a “Frankenchester”… a gun assembled from the parts of many.

Thanks guys. So the official configuration is “Frankenchester”. Fortunately, I bought this many years ago (before i even knew you fellas were around) and didn’t pay much for it. so no harm done. It sat in the safe until recently when i pulled it out and thought it wasn’t right. As usual you all are a fantastic resource!
