Default Question about correct reciever and barrel

I am considering getting a barrel to match the era of my reciever. Here is my question: I know that a barrel made up to three months prior to the reciever is accepted as correct, is it also accepted that one made three months later would be considered correct? This is specificly aimed at a making a rifle produced during the middle of WWII as correct as possible.

The accepted date-time for a barrel is three months prior max up to receiver date. any barrel within that time-frame could be considered original.

Right, three months before. I need to know if three months after the reciever date would be considered origional, or correct. I am sure there where probably circumstances that a Jul, Aug, Sept barrel got put on a May/Jun reciever, right?

Most of the time a barrel date is within three months (prior to) of the assembly date! Only if the receiver was set aside for some unknown reason would the barrel date be later! Odder things have happened...there are no rules that are set in stone re manufacturing methodology of the 40s and 50s...there's simply the accepted norm and unexplained deviations from it!!!

Anything could have happened; the original barrel could have been no good and replaced. No way to tell. During wartime, priority was to get the rifles to the troops.
Normally, 3 month prior reciever date barrel was what occured.

I have always heard 3 months prior to receiver mfg and 1 month back..Of course that old term " first in last out" would definately apply to wartime effort....They wanted to get the rifles in the hands of the troops asap.....
