    Every picture I can find here and on completed Ebay auctions show the style of the letters like pictured here and the left one above.

    The C, K, 2nd O, spacing between the L and A stand out different to me.
    The cross in the A also stands out.

    Also no sign of the small Ordnance bomb on the barrel near the slide rails.
    I won't have time to pull out my own RMC barrels until this weekend.

    May just be me......... But I'm leery of this barrel.

    EDIT: Thank You JimF for your Picture help

    Looks like a bad fake to me. But what do I know? I've only been collecting these things for 25 years.

    Hi Jim.
    Well that barrel was Import marked and hooked on to a rebuilt IP receiver.
    Sold for $2526.00 plus shipping.
    The price of IP receivers have gone up !!

    At a recent show, saw a mixmaster IP sell for 3k. Serial number was 1.77 something. Didn’t get a look at the barrel. Had a bayonet lug, adjustable rear sight. Not sure if stock was original but it had a boxed P above the wrist. Seems likes a crazy price to me but buyer stated it was the only maker he didn’t have. Also said an original one was too much and he wouldn’t know how to tell anyway

    I do agree the fonts did look different on that barrel but my question would then have to be would there really be a fake R-Ola barrel with Import Marks?

    Hi Wayne,
    Thought about that myself..... Import marked.... ?
    Font different.
    Odd gas cylinder... that looks like it was freshly soldered.

    Could this barrel have been pieced together?
    Is that even possible ?

    Thx always appreciate your input

    I found this old post by Mike from New Zealandicon. His pictures show his IP with 2-43 dated Rock-Ola barrel.
    The barrel letters match the style of the one I've been questioning (bottom one above) dated 3-43.
    RMC must have changed the style of the font/stamp at some time.
    Mikes has a R stamped on the front of the gas cylinder.
