Default Date a 513T

It's a USGI training rifle, can anyone tell me the date my 513T was made?

Also, on the top forend of the stock, both sides, there's some repair plugs. Anyone seen this before and why was it done?

If the first letter is "R" then it looks like 11-43

Thanks, the rifle is the same one in that old thread, I bought it from Eaglekeeper 4+ years ago!
Yes looks like R, so 11 43

no idea on the repair plugs, esp in those locations,

if they were lower, I would think someone had installed and then replaced/repaired some barrel tuners,

fixed yer pics

The repair plugs could be about barrel tuners, but:
1. There are too many of them;
2. The plugs are asymmetrical; and
3. The plugs should be lower on the stock, below the 9:00 position, to be for barrel tuners.

Consider this schematic for the 40X, showing the positioning of the barrel tuners:



I suspect the plugs you have are to hide repairs to the forearm.
