M220"C" FOUND!!!
« on: November 02, 2017, 12:26:22 PM »
I have been searching several years for a M220 "C" suffix.  I recently found one and it should be here next week.  It is not in the best condition, but all I am really interested in is the "C".  I still need a M219 "A" & "D" suffix.  I have not found one for sale.  Does anyone have one of these?  I would just like to be able to verify for my records that these two suffixes were made, whether for sale or not.

Re: M220"C" Received Today!

The M220"C" came in this morning.  It is a 16 gauge with a 28" barrel, with a date code of "N" which is 1962.  It was made at Westfield and has all matching assembly numbers.  As expected from the pictures in the ad, it has some cosmetic problems.  The forearm is really worn and the stock not quite as bad.  The barrel has some surface rust that I believe will come off.  The bore is perfect!  The action, pictured, below, is in excellent condition, and to my surprise, because of the wear on the wood and barrel, the alloy, painted trigger guard is in excellent condition.  This is the only "C" suffix 220 action I have seen in my 10+ years of research.
