Rebuilding Grandfathers old Winchester I inherited; it’s in great shape overall.

 

Just missing one very important part:  

 

Looking for an inter loading tube for this rifle. Or the correct measurements so I can build one. 

 

Thank you

The tube is 14 inches long 0.392 around outside crimped 0.063 from the end.

Mine has a dent about a 1/2 inch back that keeps the plunger from coming out so I’m guessing its about that long.

It is a steel tube not brass

Hope that helps

Thanks Jay, 

Thant helps. I think I can work on making one if necessary. I guess the crimp is to keep the plunger and spring in. 

 

What’s the 1/2 inch dent all about? 

 

Take care

It’s just a small dent in the tube. not supposed to be there but I’ve never found the proper sized rod to get it out.

I believe I have a complete “inner magazine tube” that you are looking for. (I didn’t get the ruler positioned correctly, but the measurements come out right).       P.M. or text (408)836-1349  RDB  UPDATE:  He’s gonna give it a try! (3-24-23) RDB

If you happen to find another magazine in your stash, Roger, I’d be interested. My 1903 carbine isn’t near as nice as the OP’s rifle but I’d like to shoot it someday. It’s a display gun, I bought it with the wrong magazine because I didn’t intend to shoot it but a range day with my 63 carbine is beginning to sound like fun.

Roger, I sent off your funds this morning. Not sure they will require a signature or not but it’s headed your way. Thanks again.
