Thanks for the reply, it's always fun to swap notes on these!
Agree on the 2-56 barrel being correct, just thought it was interesting that my NM was so close to your rifle.

Congrats on the nice find. My SG from just before Christmas #5956229 also has the original barrel and appears to have all original parts. The barrel on mine which is a little earlier than yours was from 12-55. TE-3, ME-1. The stock was definitely not original as it had an RIA stamp and none of the post war cartouches.

I wouldn't be surprised that these rifles were from the same lot.

Wow, sir if you do not play the lottery may I suggest that you start? You have extremely good fortune with mail order, that is a beautiful service grade (just as the ones you've posted in the past). I have been hoping for a 5.9M for years, I sticky for them, and would have fallen over receiving that rifle.

Many of the later 5.9's have the same parts as the 6mils.

Is your rifle largely correct? Do you have Y01 bolt and BS gas plug? SA Windage?

Almost - it has the BS gas plug and SA windage knob, but the bolt is a -19. The treat for me was the correct barrel and especially stock - it's a later post-War SA for sure. I had a nice USGI rebuild stock ready to install if the rifle had come in CMP wood, so now I guess I need another Service Grade.

I wonder if it could be that a crate was opened where they all came from the same source?
Yeah- Springfield Armory (US)

Also received 5.9 SA SG last week with a 2-56 barrel, ME2, TE 3+. It is a LEAD 2-65 rebuild and unfortunately few other original parts. 77 series SA op rod and 65 series SA TH but 5 SA hammer, HRA safety, and IHC bolt, new CMP wood.
Second SG with it was an HRA 5.4 , 7-54 barrel ME 2+, TE 3, LEAD 12-64 with no other HRA parts. SA 65 bolt, IHC op rod, WRA TH, IHC hammer. Nice birch replacement stock set,though. First SG rifle from CMP I've received with parts from all four manufacturers, and higher wear readings than in the past.
Seems like lots of postwar rifles the last few days and lots of HRA's. As somebody said, must have opened a crate with high percentage of post war rifles.

When you get a rifle that has been through a major rebuild like an LEAD, you are lucky to still have the original barrel. I would be hesitant to try and switch out parts to bring it to "correct". Right now, more than likely, the park mostly matches, and with the rebuild markings, it will never be perceived as "correct original". On the plus side LEAD rebuilds are pretty popular. Keep an eye out for an LEAD stock and enjoy it.
