Default S/A October 1942 Service Grade

Just received this Garand yesterday. S/N dates it early October 1942. Muzzle and throat readings are both 2+ with no damage to the crown.

Barrel is marked September 1942 (possibly original barrel?). Springfield barrel, bolt, and uncut operating rod. IHC trigger housing with HRA hammer and an interesting sticker that looks pretty old. The stock cartouches look similar to my Korean War era Garand.

Anyone know if the Springfield parts are original to the gun? Also I noticed a lot of wear on a section of the operating rod, and was wondering if that is an issue? Any information from more knowledgeable folks would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for taking a look.

Not a bad gift from the CMP. That looks like a HRA stock, pretty decent looking at that. The op rod looks fine from the pictures unless I am missing something. An uncut -9 is pretty cool. As for original parts, barrel possibly, the rest I doubt it, but anything is possible.

The oprod, trigger group, bolt, rear sight, and stock are not original to the rifle

Does look like it. Am I out of my mind tonight or does it appear the lower, front edges have been cut/ground out ? Usual, unusual ?
