Default Hra m1c

New one to me, the M1C with a 1956 HRA receiver and a February 1952 barrel. I didn't even know HRAs were converted to M1Cs. No mention of HRA M1Cs in Duff's post war book.

They weren't, not by Springfield Armory at least.

This came back from the Greeks - it is assumed to be made up by them - why? who knows.

This rifle is discussed in some detail in the Winter 2008 (23-1) GCA Journal. Along with another built on a SA-52 receiver, it is felt to be part of a Greek experiment in making up "new" M1C's.
