    I had 544205 at one time and it had 27 stamped on the under surface of the barrel at the receiver. I was told a long time ago that barrels were stamped with those numbers for the date the barrel was finished but the gun might not be assembled for any time up to a year after that. The stamping was also not always present depending on the stamper's being at his station, out to coffee, eating lunch, or otherwise occupied......Bob Dodd
