    How do I find out if my barrel matches my receiver? I have a lot of stamping on the top of the barrel so I don't think It is a match to my SA 445XXX receiver. Can someone help with reading barrel markings? I am new to Garands

    I'm not sure about those abbreviations, but often additional marks on barrells are inporter's stamps. This suggests the rifle was reimported back into the USA after it was given away for foreign aid, etc.

    It passed through GB

    Those are Bittish proof markings, shows it went through england at least on its way to being reimported into the US
  5. Barrel date

    So what was the date on the barrel? Late-1941? Did the other parts match?

    You better go get the American Rifleman this month with the article by Scott Duff in it on this particular rifle. You will learn allot about that rifle and its worth. Rick B

    Both receiver and barrel were made in 1/42. Stock markings seam to match to. Very hard to read the whole marking on the stock but S A is readable in tne mark. Also has a " P " under the hand grip. Stock has a hint of red paint on it . Thanks for all the help .
