Your right and I did see that but see how one A is bigger than the other. I hadn't seen date codes that were different sized !! I have seen them partially stamped and not lined up straight but not different sizes ?? I stand corrected ! Thanks John Taylor

Hi, I'm brand new to the group. I have a model 722 with barrel stamp A UU. Serial number is 605xx. It fits nicely in the list you have compiled as being made in March 1949. The problem being is that it's in 308 win chamber. Can someone help explain this because I thought 308 didn't come out till @1953? Thanks Brad

Here are a few pics of the gun. I'm hoping I can figure out the date of this gun.

Something doesn't look right. My guess is the barrel was swapped and somehow restamped A UU
