    If the barrel on R-37228 is dated 1974 it's correct for the action. R-37228 would be near the end of the c3 serial range.

    Are R-23594 bases steel? That is right in the prime C3 serial range.

    Apparently the clandestine (false WW2 dated) 9mm was supplied to the US until approx. 1970 -

    So who knows how long the 8mm was supplied...but I suspect into the early 1960s.
