Two ways of looking at this rifles value.
1. Shooter. You have no way of knowing without gaging the barrel. Assuming good values, add $200 for Winchester receiver to base value of service grade of $730.

2. Collectible.
Start valuing WRA parts: op rod $250, stock $500, barrel, $500, gas cylinder $125, bolt $150, rear sight assembly $300. See how many or more of these high value parts the rifle has.

Then decide what you want the rifle for and how much you are willing to pay. $1200 is low for a WRA collectible with any appreciable number of correct parts.

WRA just sold on the CMP forum. Only part that was WRA was the receiver and bolt. Sold for $1150 shipped insured 1/2 hour after being posted with two other people taking seconds

Thanks from RDS

In this area any Winchester mix master with a nice crisp logo with nice clear TRADE MARK will bring $1200.00 no problem. If the tang logo is wiped it will not bring that type of money even if it has a lot of Winchester parts.

If it's a mixmaster - Winny or not - just send it off to Shuff's for a chop job, his 16" Mini-G.

Yeah, all the collectard-types will faint from the shock, but who cares? You'll have something to shoot that's both unique and practical.

You can thank me later ...
