Interesting discussion. I understand that 1938 star gauge barrels from SA do not have the star on the muzzle, only the star gauge code on the bottom of the barrel. It appears that star gauge barrels from other armories continued to stamp the muzzles.

Very nice rifle, by the way!

I have an early 1930's (SRS-papered) NRA Sporter that has the Star Guage stamp under the barrel, but no muzzle stamp. Not to derail this thread on this beautiful NM, but always wondered why my Sporter had no muzzle stamp.

as much as i appreciate the compliments on the rifle, the comments so far have been interesting and informative, so no problem here with a relevant side discussion.

cheers...gary

I've seen a lot of really light strikes on the muzzle of the barrel and a lot of muzzles have wear that can sometimes erase them further. Is maybe your muzzle really worn and it was a light strike?
