Default Unusual 1903

This 1903 in a scant stock has a very late '39 receiver and a highly unusual '41 marked barrel. I have had some people call it "likely an expedient assembly for the war effort. Springfield had ceased barrel production in 1939, but started again in 1941 with production of replacement barrels." I have also had another call into question the weird font and stamps on the barrel. I am looking for some input into the legitimacy of this. (The finish on the stamped part of the barrel sure looks legit, but font on barrel is odd.)
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!
