I think Winchester was the winning bidder.

Actually, I don't know who the other wartime contractors were. I know H&R and International Harvester made Garands, but I'm of the impression that they were in the Korean War era. Is this correct?

Best,
Johnny

Winchester and Remington. Winchester won because they had the correct equiptment left from the Educational order and could produce faster.

Gentlemen,
You are correct.Winchester and Remington bid.

Winchester won because Remington demanded advance payment.

Ps only Winchester and SA built WW2 M1's. HRA and IHC were built for Korea.
