I second this. I have just got a 5,289,xxx today through mail order. Was told it was a little rarer than some. Curious about it.

Rolling Thunder

Is there any way these files could be posted as an EXCELL file?

Thanks

Very interesting info, It shows that there are no "absolute" date or serial number ranges or even manufacturer when they were throwing these M1s together. I suspect the same thing was going on at the height of WW2 manufacturing. I believe there is way more leeway on what could be "correct" for any given serial # rifle. Like inspectors pulling lots of parts out of production for checks then putting them back on line at a later date. Boxes of parts being shuffled around. Receivers pulled off the line for whatever reason then put back in line "out of order"

I have a June '42 SA with a bolt 2 months too "early" and a barrel 1 or 2 months too "late". Finish and wear match, who can guarantee if they are or are not original?

This is what I saw on another forum.

"If you want rarest of the rare, there are the 500 SA's numbered from 5,000,000 to 5,000,499 and 400 HRA's in the 6.0M serial number block. Other rarities include 5.4M HRA's with just over 19,000 built, and 5.2M SA's with just 21,754 made."

Was wondering if y'all might have known more or if this 21,754 rifle in the 5.2m range is true.

Numeric rarity in the 5 mil SA range due to assigned numbers is often discussed. Some people get excited over it, others not so much. I’m in the latter group.
