Default Is my FG a candidate for Type 1 NM?

The first thing I noticed upon inspecting my HRA Field Grade was the NM marked on the barrel (btw 3,3+).

Then I noticed the rack number on the stock.

So I cataloged various parts and did a brief search on NM Garands and I found my rifle has a few things in common with Type Is according to American Rifleman.

What do you guys think?

It is not uncommon to find NM barrels on common garands.

What advantage does a NM barrel offer?

I think there are no HRA type 1 national match rifles so random replacement barrel receiver combination.

I recall for op rod, a “nm” stamp signifies an improvement in design, not necessarily made better or tighter tolerances, ie a newer version. I think for barrel is about the same.
