    The twist BreakyP indicates suggests this to be an early Savage barrel. I have one (6-groove) and haven't had it apart for a while but I don't believe there to be much in the way of markings on it. Not marked up like a Britishicon barrel, in any case. So, a salvaged Savage barrel used in FTR?

    Most reports I've seen of six-groove barrels on non-Savage #4's turned out to be the result of mis-counting lands/grooves. Can we see a photo of the bore as a sanity check?

    Ridolpho. Mine has a L.B. barrel with right twist; has a "6" stamped on the right bayonet lug and, on the Nock's form: CMK 4, A inside C, 58 and the later Canadianicon Proof. All normal.

    Yes, my '43 Long Branch has those same marks. BreakyP's rifle has "counterclockwise twist viewed from the chamber" which, I think, means it is a Savage barrel?

    Yes, I think so too. But the Savage barrel should not have the flaming bomb?

    Canadianicon 6 groove barrels are well marked as Ridolpho says. 6 groove, LH twist is a Savage barrel. My Savage w/6 groove barrel isn't marked with the flaming bomb on the bayonet lug. Their 2 groove barrels normally have the U.S. Ordnance flaming bomb stamped on one of the bayonet lugs. Mine is on the left one. No other markings are present except for a single letter stamp, (inspector?), on top of the Knox and some have the letter C for Chicopee Falls stamped on the side of Knox. Savage sent tons of spares as well as complete rifles to Englandicon. Check the rear of the front sight base too as it'll be marked with the square "S" providing it's Savage manufacture.
