A shallow dimple on the right side behind the stacking swivel is later WW2 SA wide base. You might also have one or two punchmarks on the underside of the bayonet lug.

You are lucky to get a Rack Grade special in which most of the parts are close to matching in finish and wear. The ones I saw at the North Store a few weeks ago were badly mismatched.

Yes, I'd say the gas cylinder assembly needs refinished but you might want to just try to trade someone for a darker one?
