Caesar1,
Open the bolt and see if the end of the chamber is in the" white" or parked. If it's white it is probably original. Most re-parks are done with the barrel left on the receiver. Eddie

+1, also that LC52 ball in the first picture is the fake Chinese stuff that I would not feed to any carbine..

Good eye on the ammo!
Carbine barrels are different than garands, not much there in the breach to be in the white.

True, but enough to see the park on the face. Eddie

Pretty sure that is French manufactured ammo. Still corrosive though.

He hasn't responded yet, lots of people (including me) have trouble telling , unless I was the one who reparked it!

Markings near the front sight of the barrel look rather faint as tho it was reparked long ago and undergone normal wear since. An unparked one would likely have crisper markings....baseing this on the several I own.
