Default Question about barrel date

Hi guys
I picked up a Inland carbine today from a guy that needed money
my question is the serial # is 5326xxx and the barrel date is 6-44
my question is do you think it is the original barrel to the reciever
the gun was all 100% inland every part the right configuration for the serial #
except the cut down type 3 barrel band made to look like a type 2
the stock is a excelant inland low wood with a very nice cross cannon there is a rebuild mark on the heel of the stock RA-P but it dosent look like it has ever been sanded, cleaned or messed with in years and has a very nice patina on the stock
Thanks for the help

Your barrel dates earlier than your serial number and may very well be the original.

Your rec. dates about mid May, 1944 and there it would be in the very high percentages if not 100% that your barrel and rec are original mates. There may be several months difference between a barrel and rec. date and still be original mating !!

Re-did math and that would indicate early Aug which is closer to BQ97 than my original est of May. Old age may be catching up or I may be catching it. My figs were 4879526+63588=60023=61002+60028+53006+56100+77060 through Jul. 1944. This adds to ss 5310333just shy of 5326XXX which marks at early Aug 1944. It would still indicate a probable original...

The serial number dates to July 1944 so a 6-44 barrel would be appropriate.
