I had been looking for a nice 6.5 million Winchester for some time when I found and bought this 6.6.  Here are some pictures.

Very nice. I have a 6602XXX in similar condition except it has a stamped adjustable H in shield rear sight. Is your stock a long channel?

Very nice looking carbine. Is there any marking on the side of the bolt lug?

For those who do not know: Notice the 'TRADEMARK" had been moved above the WINCHESTER marking. In the beginning, the trademark was below. When they were switching over to the adjustable sights they realized the name was obscured and changed the arrangement.

There is a marking on the bolt lug.  Not sure what it is.

One of the nicest carbines I've seen! Wow is that one beautiful WRA.

The last pic on the sofa chair really shows that awesome gray finish that I'm learning late WRAs are really known for.

Grail gun in my world. Congrats brother:)

That is just beautiful, when i bought my Winchester that is what I thought I was buying, a Winchester through and through, but then I was used to civilian guns and thought that's how it was with military guns as well. That was before I learned about the arsenal rebuild program and I found out mine was a mix-master, shock. What I hoped for was a Winchester with all the late upgrades, and there it is, but you have it, I am so jealous, but glad for you. I repeat, what a beautiful gun.
