First M1A and a couple of questions

I finally broke down and bought my own after fondling the 40 I have in my arms room for the past year and a half. It is a standard SA M1A sn 62XXX. The barrel is marked HR up by the receiver, but under the barrel up towards the muzzle it is stamped Geneso, IL. Is this common for them to mark USGI barrels like that? At first I thought I had been ripped off as I bought this rifle on Gunbroker and it was described as having a USGI barrel. Everything is USGI, except the trigger group. thanks for the help. I cant wait to get out and shoot this bad boy.

That's not unusual at all. SAinc marked all rifles I have seen with their rollmark and some with .308 in front of the gas cylinder. It is still a USGI H&R barrel. TJR
