    What rifle is more valuable,
    H&R 3-55 date with a matching date H&R barrel or
    SA 7-42 date with a SA 11-65 barrel???

    Need a lot more info. Condition of rifles, does stock have cartouches or rebuild stamps ? Are barrels shot out ? Aside from the barrel does the 7/42 have original parts ? Does H&R have original parts ? Post some pictures of the rifles and internal parts.
    Looking for SA bayonets 922033 & 1045220

        Me too! Let's see a rebuild Springfield Armory 1942, replacement matching parts VS a 1954 International Harvester rebuild with National Match barrel, sights with a trigger and a properly bedded stock.

          Hey 05C40: I’ll go for the Springfield! I know H&R didn’t build many, but didn’t Springfield supply them with Parts in the beginning? Really enjoying the holidays, HNY AJ

            Truthfully it all hinges on what you intend to use the rifle for. If competition the Springfield with the 11-65 barrel is the obvious choice, dependant on actual barrel condition, since the 65 SA barrels are some of the most accurate barrels ever installed on a Garand. I have a correct H&R with a virtually new original barrel on it. My Springfield rebuilt IHC with an 11-65 barrel on it will shoot rings around the H&R all day long. But, depending on how many other parts are correct on the H&R, any rifle with an excellent original barrel on it will have more value. So, value, H&R, utility and accuracy, Springfield. Your choice. As a shooter my choice would be the Springfield.
