Default M1 Garand WRA Barreled Receiver 1612395

I'm confused by the auction item
M1 Garand WRA Barreled Receiver 1612395 where it says "Manufactured in August of 1943" but the receiver says "D28291 WIN-13".
Also the description says "Top Barrel: D35448 W.R.A" & "Side Barrel: W8125 H&R G 7.62 NATO".
Was the barrel rechambered by H&R?
Did somebody mistype 1943 instead of 1945?

Appreciate anyone clearing this up for me.

The barrel appears to be a WWII era WRA barrel that has had an insert put into the chamber by H&R to convert it to 7.62 x 51 use. That receiver would have been made in 1945. I am guessing someone looked up the Springfield serial number of 1612395 and came up with a date of 1943 which would have been correct for a Springfield of that serial number, but not for a Win-13 Winchester of that serial number.

Navy barreled action as sold by the CMP a few years ago. And yep, converted by H&R with an insert.

Anybody else notice the WRA rear sights? The photos must be zoomed to super close-up to see the WRA flared arrow heads on the sight drums.
