    Sept.1943 SA rec. with March 1944 SA barrel?

    Chamber in white ,bolt ,uncut op rod ,trigger group,lock bar sites. Stock sanded no marks but light P on grip. All cage codes appear right. Is the barrel close enough to be correct?

    Generally speaking, collectors like to see no more than a three-month difference between the barrel and receiver dates. That said, even the most "advanced" collectors have stated that during the heart of WWII longer ranges between those two components have been observed and accepted as original examples. Furthermore, there are other variables at play when determining originality. All that said, there is a large difference between original and correct. If such a date range during that time period you're inquiring about has been documented, and accepted, then you could consider your example "correct."

      Remember too, that SA held back large quantities of receivers in case of work stoppages such as material shortages. The rifles were NOT assembled in sequential order either. Your receiver and barrel COULD be original to each other. The only thing certain about the M1 rifle is that nothing is certain.
