Noob, how close to all parts original SA from CMP

Just wondering how close to all parts original with an M1 I picked up from the CMP Field Grade USGI

SN# 33978XX
OP rodD35382
Right side of receiverD28291
Bolt D28287-19SA
Under Butt plate Small hole has the letter U with small lazy 8
Elevation knob HRA
Barrel 1-3-SA

two extremely faint cartouches, can't make them out. Walnut stock.

Your bolt is probably correct for the rifle...

The Op-rod is a post war replacement.
The elevation knob is Korean era.

Something missing from the barrel markings. Should be a month and date. 1-3 is short a digit somewhere....

Look for markings on the windage knob, trigger housing, hammer (face), safety and gas lock screw.

Best regards,

Garands forever

And to answer the next obvious question,as it left the factory it would have had:

SA 11 or 12 of 1944 barrel

-19 bolt

-9 curved side op-rod

-14 trigger housing

-7 or -8 hammer

SA-11 safety

-12 follower assembly

type III lockbar sights

SA/GAW or SA/NFR cartouched stock, it's in an overlap range.

But,as it sets it's also a great example of a USGI Garand that has been rebuilt many times from hard service,also an "original" unto itself. Enjoy and welcome. TJR
