Garands marked "O-66" on the top of the receiver were rebuilt by Marine Corps armorers. The one I saw in the North Store racks looked as though it had been rebuilt again, but I don't know that there is any way to tell for certain. If you bought that rifle, you might try shooting it as is - as I recall, the barrel readings weren't bad, and I suspect it was graded Rack because of the stock.

Good luck!
