You have an XXXX rifle with an XX barrel made in 19XX.

Hope this helps.

So, I have a August 1941 dated Sedgely barrel on a rifle in a similar serial range as the OP's, with pipe vise marks forward of the rear sight.
Got it.
I am seeking info from the wise ones, and I get flack.

You are so kind.

Terry, I have a rifle with a Sedgley USMC barrel dated 8-41 as well. Has all the other typical USMC features, but is on a Rock Island receiver.

Terry you did give some pretty limited information there.

Tazaroo you are probably thinking of the USMC bolts that were made by United Shoe...

Terry, John and Rick are just ribbing in fun (I think). I have two RIAs, one right ast the cusp of the low/high number with a 9/44 S barrel. The other well into the high number with an S 7/4X barrel. Haven't been able to get the 2nd digit out because of the $%^&*X chrome (Former ceremonial piece I picked up at the South Store a couple of weeks back) Both exhibit the aforementioned USMC traits on the barrel and receiver.

If you want complete information, you need to give the entire serial number. The old wives' tale of trouble if you post your whole serial number is just that.

Coaching of what info is needed would be fine, and welcomed.
I have been suggesting this forum as a source of information to those that are interested in learning about and collecting American Firearms, especially to those folks under the age of 30.
I hoped to keep their interest alive and growing.

I have doubts as to whether I was doing them a disservice now.

BTW, Rick- it is NOT for sale.

What more details would help ?
