    Just picked up another old a5 today. The serial # on the reciever is 8m 23xxx. looks to be a 1958,however, the barrel doesn't have a matching number. The # on the barrel is k10035. I thought all barrells had matching #'s. Anyone tell me what this means? Mike

    Barrels in time were changed out from gun to gun. It is at times hard to find a gun with its factory barrel.

    thanks auctioneer, the barrel looks pretty new-so does the receiver. The forend wood looks like the original, but there is no # on it either. My other ones do have it on them. Didn't pay too much for it, so I'm ok. Mike
