If you think that your barrel may have been swapped, then you go to a table (such as that complied by Scott Duff) that lists Receiver SN/barrel combinations with known originals. If you find out where your receiver SN falls within that list (between two other serial numbers), then you will have an idea what date your barrel should be.

It isn't perfect, but its about all we have for post war Garands.
