Default Cutover Date for Hanguard Clearance Cut

Folks,
Trying not to sound dumb here but I am trying to understand when the cutover date or serial number was for the rear handguard (closest to the receiver) to have a clearance cut. I am talking about the clearance cut at the back where the handle of the oprod could impact it.

I know early guns did not have this; and now I understand Winchesters did not have them until possible Win-13?

I also know sometimes it is hard to tell if one originally did not have this clearance cut; but after getting whacked a few hundred or thousand times it kind of looks like it was there from the beginning. A machine cut one is easy to see.

Can anyone help educate me?
Thanks,
Bill B

based on looking at some of my data sheets that were represented as original information, I would say the cut-off is December 1940. Give or take some overlap

Cool thanks - that makes sense. I have two Dec 40's and one does and one does not.

What about the Winchesters? Is it true they never did have the clearance cut, until maybe Win 13?

I am always willing to learn and/or be corrected.

The cut WRA handguards started showing up on the 2.5 mil rifles.
