I don't think that should be an issue. The barrel would have come to the factory already parked and they will not have the same metal content, so the park will be different.

I might be able to go out this weekend and find out. I took the 5.7 mil out a couple last fall and had to adjust the elevation up quite a bit. I was shooting HXP from loose CMP cans.

in the 1990's pre Greek returns the most common HRA's that came out of the CMP LOTD or sticky were 5.4 / 4.7 and 5.7 mils and everyone wanted to know where all the 5.5 5.6's were.

Of the three rifles.. The 5.6 sounds most orig, 4.68 is a CMP rebuild with CMP installed 2-55 bbl. 5.74 again a CMP nothing uber special.

I'd keep the 5.6 .....CMP wood and CMP parts build M1 does nothing for me..

I would favor #2, the 5.6 HR. Has H&R stock, correct barrel and mostly H&R components. I would have gone for #1 if it still had the Springfield 60s rebuild stock.

The 4.68 received leg is etched SA 12-64. Could the 2-55 barrel have been installed at that point? Or what barrel dates were installed during the rebuilds in the 60's?
What stock would have been on a SA rebuild in the 60's?

Most of the Springfield 60s rebuilds would have had a 60s dated Springfield barrel. I suppose it is possible they could have use the 2-55 dated barrel. It is also possible this rebuild was received by CMP as a receiver only and built up from there.

The most common characteristics I have found on a Springfield 60s rebuild stock is inletting and bedding on the bottom of the stock in the area where it contacts the trigger housing, a Springfield style circled P and a DAS cartouche.

There's a class of collector who collects rebuilds? Didnt know that. You learn something new every day.


For my 2, I agree with those who say #2. It's the only one with USGI wood, and more importantly has the key HRA parts which are likely original.
