There is no such thing as matching numbers on a Garand.
There is one serial number then drawing numbers on everything else.
There are charts and books that will tell you if your parts are correct for the serial
If you want to know post them and I can look them up

Mine's a Springfield Armory post war model. It was manufactured between 1955-1957.

It's a SA 5,84X,XXX serial.

I had a whole box of them that were turned in by a JROTC, they were dummy/drill rifles without wood, they'd been welded up so they were just hunks of metal anymore. But it was still a minor drool factor to have all these M1's in my warehouse. (I work for the Army and they're being sent of to god knows where for final disposition, whatever that may be).

Come to think of it, one was chromed and had "Smith-Corona" on it LOL


Edit: that "Smith-Corona" might have been a 1903...I had a bunch of those in the same condition as well.
