Similar But Not Identical

Went on ebay to get a normal 3-position safety for Trudy.

I found someone with a "Winchester Model 54 Safety Switch".


Can you see my mistake?


Yeah, that's a Springfield M1903 bolt sleeve and safety, not a Winchester.

They're so very close... because they've a common parentage, Mauser.  Close but no cigar.

So the seller gets a neutral feedback for not knowing what he had, and I get to try reselling it on Gunbroker.
