The initials of Henry Rothstein. He was the QC inspector for Springfield Armory Inc. in 1962.

Sounds to me it's a Harrington & Richardson barrel made in 1962. I rebarreled my M1-a with one years ago. H&R was one of the government contracters who made the M14 rifle. I never have heard of an inspecter put his mark on a barrel.

Also, Springfield Inc. did not exist in 1962.

The "current" Springfield Armory Inc. used/uses surplus parts to complete their newly made receivers into complete weapons. Most consider the surplus parts better than the newly made stuff as long as the surplus stuff is in excellent condition. My 1989-ish made M1A has a nice Winchester made barrel on it. SA Inc. has been running low/out of some parts and have been either making or haveing made new parts and some have had some issues with some of the stuff. Older rifles assembled with all surplus parts seem to be more desieable as such.

I was just having a little fun. I knew someone would be along to give him the straight story.

Don't worry, be HAPPY! USGI chromed bore and chamber BBL. manufactured in 1962. A NOS GI BBL goes for 250-300 most of the time so Yippi Ki Yi!!
