Iím too am finding the correcting Garands is a deep and expensive rabbit-hole.

The gas cylinder part number is marked on very early gas cylinders.

WRA Used NARROW BASE GAS CYLINDERS on the following serial # blocks:

Serial #s 100.001-125,00 (Marked D35449W.R.A. right side of ring)
Serial #s 125,001-1,600,00 & 125,001-2,350,00 (Unmarked)

The saw cut on the front is a war-time modification that was to address loose barrel:cylinder issues, but was later discontinued.
