These are my first carbines, so I'm as green as they come. 
The parts tray is from the QH, I havn't got to the inland yet.

It's probably LT-Q which would indicate Quality Hardware parts.

Almost done with the data sheet.
After the magnifying glass test, she seems to be fairly correct/ unmolested. Except the adj. rear sight.
Trigger group has all Q s, only part I found that didn't have a Q was the slide, it has what appears to be a W in the bottom but also an E and Q or O on the arm.

It's an o on the arm. Some of us figure it stands for Olin. Especially the early slides will have it, and most Win trigger housings, even when there is no W stamped. I have an early housing like that. Strong o. No W.
My sig: Seen an IP or S'G'? Add it to my registry. We'll check consecutives.

Nice Pictures! What grade did you buy?

I failed to get a "Fine" grade, trying to beat out 900 other buyers at 8:01AM, but got a number 3. Winchester #1,152,640. At first was disappointed, BUT:
 This rifle was prefect, no ware no nicks etc. seems all Winchester. I am almost suspicious of the carbine, it is so good and clean.
Have pictures but do not know how to download from desktop.
