    I don't think any "extra wide rib" receivers were manufactured in June 1940 as the CMP states, unless someone can provide a photo and serial number.

    here are additional photos of receivers from this serial number range Click image for larger version

        There is an extra "narrow" rib found only on early revision 2 receivers. Early revision 2 receivers were manufactured with and without the extra narrow rib. Also they were also manufactured with both the square and round bolt recess. The extra narrow rib lasted into the 60K serial range.
