Picked up an HRA

Well, thanks to all that helped me in my previous posts, I went ahead and bought it. S/N 5,491,xxx. purchased 7/02 from the south store as SG H&R. Have all the paperwork and box.

Trigger Group 6528290-HRA N
Hammer HRA 5546008
Safety HRA
Stamped trigger guard
Bolt 6528287 HRA .U.
rear sight Rt side DRC Lft side HRA on side of knob
Receiver 6528291
oprod 6535382 SA
Barrel HRA D 65865448 7-54 RS35 P M V half a DOD stamp
Gas cylinder lock high hump
wide sight base
gas cylinder lock screw P X
Stock 1/2" decent stamp DOS and non-serifed circle P
Wood- decent, with dings and dents, all walnut and same color.

I know the oprod is wrong and probably the cylinder lock screw, but how do I tell if the gas cylinder itself is correct?? Stock is probably not correct to the S/N, but is HRA.

Any other guidance as to what is correct or incorrect would be great! Since most of the rifle is HRA, I'm going to try and make it as correct as possible. barrel and receiver correct??

the staking of the stacking swivel screw is a clue. HRAs have an off-center (I think), blunt stake, looks like a BB was used. IHCs have the same mark, but it is centered. or maybe the centering is backwards.... but it is a blunt, BB-shaped staking deformation for sure.

Ok, the stacking swivel does have a BB shaped stake mark opposite the screw head. It is centered pretty well.
