    Thank you, John. I appreciate your reply. A year or so ago, I assembled a complete SA rifle (MkI receiver with an SA 9-42 barrel....see pics) mostly to use extra parts that I had laying around, including a pre-war C stock and hand guard. I was fooling around with no drill scope mounts. I can take that C stock and the no notch rear sight from the barrel and install on this 34 rifle (If I were to purchase it) then use the A3 stock and the notched rear sight on my project rifle. I might even have a small N.S. bolt at home. The front sight and even the cut off are easily replaced. That's my though, anyway.

    Thanks. I go to them quite often. Yes...their prices do seem high. Collectors Firearms out of Houston, TX has some good stuff but they are even higher priced.

    Hello John,

    How are you? On this particular rifle, I was sent this SRS sheet. Seems to confirm what you say about majority NM rifles being DCM sales.

Springfield Armory 1933 and 1934 production was loose barrels and loose receivers which were used to replace barrels and low number receivers turned in for overhaul. Because 1933 and 1934 barrels and receivers were not mated at the time of manufacture, serial numbers and barrel dates can be mismatched by months. In the gunbroker rifle case, the barrel date is mismatched by no more than three months, which is not unusual in the least. I will also mention that, other than a few DCM sales rifles, no National Match rifles were manufactured in 1933, 1934, and 1935.

    And finally, as others have pointed out, the gunbroker rifle is substantially overpriced. However, one option approach to acquire a complete matching rifle is to buy the rifle along with another rifle with the correct stock and other parts, swap the parts around, then re-sell the leftover parts rifle to recoup some of your investment.

    Good Luck! And stay safe!

    JB knows his stuff. If you have some good/correct parts already go ahead and make an offer. Good luck.

    Oh! Yeah....you do! I'm such a tard! I should have known that. I was concerned about the out of focus image. Oh well, maybe others will find it useful/interesting.
