    Garand bolt heat lot question

    M1icon rifle bolt- 2SA, heat lot REP 2. What is the serial number range for this bolt? Is this the same as RE 2 or a different number altogether?. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    July 1940 to March of 1942 which would put the serial# range roughly from 52,000 to 542,500. I'm not positive about the heat lot numbers.

    Thanks for your replies. I checked that list already and it isn't listed. The bolt is in a Sept. 1941 rifle, serial #324770 (Brit Proofed) and appears to be all original.

    thanks for the email, to answer your question about the large and small crossed cannon stamp, it is my understanding that the small crossed cannon stamp first appeared in Nov 1941 (I have Lend Lease rifle 381xxx with the SA GHS, long cannel and small crossed cannon stamp) but that stock still could have been changed at some point in time too !
