WWII rifles were pumped out by the hundreds for- well obvious reasons. So a lot of their quality, even by Springfield and Winchester factories, could leave a bit to be desired.
After 1945 going into Korea and eventually Vietnam, more companies got the contract, namely Harrington & Richardson, and International Harvester.
As well, not having to fulfill massive contracts, or deal with materials shortage as much, Springfield could up their game.
International Harvester barrels are some of the most sought after.
IHC complete rifles are rare, and considered superb quality.
Finding a really nice complete HRA rifle is nice, too.
