The 836XXX rifle looks Marine. The serial range is great. The Marines ordered 8800 Sedgley barrels in 1941, and that contract was completed by Sept 1941.

The rifle has the hatcher hole as it should have post late 1938, and if you pull the handguard it should have the vise marks on the barrel.

Now the CMP can change parts around on these some.

But yes to me, I have no doubt it was a Marine Corps rifle.

It's a great range.
