Default Listing #5717 M1 Garand Field Grade SA Rifle 533335 Barrell Question

This auction started this morning and shows:
Muzzle Gauge: 4+
Throat Gauge: 0+
Barrell: 3-SA-5-43
The Bore condition of this rifle is in the white.

What would cause the Muzzle reading to be 4+ when the Throat is 0+ which is basically new??

Thanks for your answers!

Aggressive cleaning with little actual shooting.

Not sure about the aggressive cleaning. I recall GCA did an article on that where they purposefully cleaned some rifles too much and it did little to impact the muzzle. Can't recall off-hand the article. I do think improper cleaning can impact accuracy.

A "Barracks Gun". Vs a range gun which might be expected to have a reverse reading of 0-7.

Default cleaning

While in collage '59-'60 I was in ROTC, we had to clean our M1s weekly. We knew they had not been fired but the NCO in charge of the arms room stood and watch us disassemble and vigorously clean each clean rifle. I'm surprised they all didn't look like Blunderbusses.

Default Yep

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ IMHO....it is a Garand that was at a HS (ROTC) Military Academy....(I went to Columbia Military Academy in Columbia, TN - aka CMA - in 1962 and 63 and we 'cleaned' our issued weapons almost weekly for MST training.....) Just my opinion though

I agree that it sounds far-fetched, and I am willing to hear another explanation if you have one. I very much doubt it was made like that.

Damage to the barrel that resulted in muzzle being bored?

That's a pretty good crack on the left side of the stock.

Yep! Way down into the stock from the clip latch notch. Don't see an inspector's cartouche so replacing the stock with another would be no big deal. So that makes it just about the number.
