Hope these help. You can definitely tell the wings were cut off.

You have a Garand with a mixture of early parts. Nice
Thanks for posting pics

Yeah, I kinda figured it would be a frankenstein. Not a big deal though. How can you distinguish between some of the early and later parts?

Receiver is from 1941, barrel 1944, hammer is Winchester,Op Rod is uncut but cant se the last number (what is it?)
Bolt is from 1941
You date them by the Drawing numbers. Is there anything stamped on the stock??

If you are going to fire it you might want to think about replacing the Op Rod spring with one from Orion 7. Also the Garand runs on grease not oil

Cool, thanks. Pretty sure the last # on the op rod is a 5
