If you will share a partial serial number the original maker can be determined, if the barrel is different manufacturer it probably was added after the war and old stock from all makers was being used up in the rebuilding program. Inland did not supply barrels to the free parts program but did help Saginaw in the early years. Also even though your rear sight ( a milled unit not stamped) covers the name with a flash light you should be able to make out enough to come up with the name.
PS: These rifles were made to shoot and are basically bulletproof so don’t lock them in the safe to gather dust. I have twelve of them and all get shot from the Oct 42 Inland to a 5mil Inland.
From your photo looks like the S/N is assigned to Inland Div of GM
