Again if I remember correctly they were still building NM rifles but there was a shortage of barrels that was within NM specs so the stash of 54 barrels was a god send. A year or so ago I bought a IHC at south store and it had a 3/63 NM barrel on it and no other sign of being a NM rifle. I asked the Armorer at the counter about it and he said it came from the Army with that barrel and for whatever reason the Army had installed it.
