According to yoyur serial number and given the fact that your gun is the round butt version it sppears to be a Late 1947 Gun
. it should have the one line address and long style action. Yours is a very early round butt variation
and is a Five screw model but will have the later Matte style bluing like the 5" square butt example shown, that was made in 1946. I hope this helps, Hammerdown
