Would that mean test rigs/receivers had the capability of being adjusted for short chambered barrels when proof fired?

To make it more confusing, I have an 03 SA rifle, receiver manufactured Apr 1934 (possible WWII build from held receivers) with a SA barrel dated 9-42 with no prick punch, and a 03 RA rifle, receiver manufactured Dec 1942) with most likely a replacement HS barrel dated 10-44 with no prick punch. My 03-A3 rifle, RA receiver manufactured Sep 1943 with a RA barrel dated 7-43 with prick punch. All purchased from the CMP years ago.
