I have no recollection of stating that late 1941/early 1942 SA barrels were issued to the USMC. However, I agree with cplnorton that very few late 1941/early 1942 SA barrels were issued to the USMC. The USMC at that time was buying barrels from Sedgley, and those barrels were marked "USMC".

Even though the barrel might possibly, but unlikely, have been replaced, 42Springfield's rifle exhibits numerous USMC characteristics.
