Default Three Service grades just arrived.. what do I have?

From my research I believe I have January 1943, December 1944, May 1945. I think the 1945 has an original barrel. Also has lock bar sight. All have new wood. Two of three have uncut oprod. Are either rare? Thanks!

Date wise the barrel on the 3.73 is spot on to be original. The lockbar sight is SA so not uncommon but a little more valuable than a regular T105 is. Uncut op rods used to be not often seen but they are not so uncommon now especially a -9. They've have a little premium over a cut -9 but not a whole lot. Hard to tell by the pic but is one of the uncuts a -3? Your rifles all have good barrels on them so all should be good shooters. Congrats

It is also a -9. Is that correct for a May 45?

That lock bar on the 3.7 is an earlier type 2 model with rounded ends, a type 3 with square ends would be expected for that s/n. Luckily these are not hard to find or expensive.

do you remember the order time line? When you sent in your order and when it hit the Estore, card charged.


I sent my order in on 10/05 but nothing as of today.

I am not sure I would mess with the type-2 lock bar on the 45 SA. Hard to say with a late production 45 what parts were being pulled out of the parts bin. You could grab one for prosperity sakes but make sure you save the original one. Also look at their pinion staking to see if the bar has been removed, might be an indicator of a replacement part. Great score of the rifle. 45s are my favorite period.
