Re: How to Identify Rifle

Well, you seem to have a carbine with some mixed parts (the bar/ring should be there, the guard swivel should not, so it passed that test). It could be a military rebuild/refinish, but was more likely assembled by someone after it left the army. The lockplate should not be dated at that number - the practice stopped around 75000, so that is not "as made" either.

Does it have a compartment under the buttplate (which has a swinging cover)?
