VAR or LMR?

For $900 you did OK if the barrel isn't a sewer pipe. From the few pictures I can tell it is not all correct IHC as the seller told you.I can see it has a cut gas cylinder which is WWII

I did not notice the cut gas cylinder at all. Good catch. I do like the dark wood. I have another Garand, a field grade I think, and the wood is that dark brown. From years of dirt or what I don't know but it just 'fits' the rifle.

Picked up the rifle this afternoon. Seems to be largely correct and in very good condition. It appears to be all, mostly all, IHC manufacture. Exceptions are the gas cylinder and gas cylinder lock. Trigger group is IHC although I did not check the hammer plunger, follower,etc. Receiver, op rod, and trigger group seem to be IHC.
The bore needs to be cleaned and shows as frosty to me. The seller included four bandoliers of the Korean K-headstamped ammo which is corrosive if I remember right. That may be why the bore is frosty. The rifling is there but I don't think I'd call it sharp. MW and TE are right on up there.
The stock is Overton and has the OR impressed into the wood. I didn't remove either handguard.
All told I spent 950 for the rifle and ammo. Image link below.
