H&R questions again

OK going to look at the rifle tomorrow. The S/N is in the 5,49x,xxx range. the stock has a 1/2" DOS stamp and non-serifed circle P. The oprod is 6535382 SA, and the gas nut/plug/thing is not stamped with HRA. Everything else is supposed to be HRA. Barrel is 7/54 HRA.

first question would be is- Stock is very likely HRA, but is it correct for this early of a S/N? I assume that the oprod is correct to the period, but not on an HRA rifle.

Anything else I should look for? TE is supposed to be 3 1/2 and MW is not known, but passes the bullet test easily. Supposed to be a CMP SG HRA.

DRC marked sight knobs are common on HRA but I think this s/n ranage should have HRA marked knobs.

Notice the extended back porch (in spite of the shadow across it). This stock has a 3/8" DAS. IIRC there's a cross over period where 3/8" & 1/2" DAS were both used before going to all 1/2". Believe this is in the higher serial numbers.

You're correct on the op rod.

Thanks LtBlue! That is what I thought, but no sense in screwing up somthing that might be correct without good information.

Are there certain oprod numbers that would be correct for this S/N? I've seen the exact code, just with HRA not SA. Would this be correct?? At least the stock is HRA, even if it is for a later rifle.
