alright the 5-44 is what the other guys were looking for, 5-44 means the barrel is from may of 1944. the RA above it means that it was a reminton barrel and the R on the bolt means that it is a remington bolt as well, they did a large amount of the post WWII refits before the rifles were placed back in storage, I have a springfield with a remington bolt in it. doesn't hurt it at all. those 1944 remington barrels were very accurate for the most part, you should have a very good shooter on your hands now.
