OP is the bolt body &/or the trigger color case hardened? I know John's book says that Remington started to only color case harden the back of the bolt in 1942. Kind of a long shot but if the entire bolt is color case hardened then it was definitely made earlier. The trigger being color case hardened would be a good indicator too. Going from memory here but I believe they stopped case hardening the triggers in 1948. I know on my 1946 513T the back half of the bolt and the trigger are case hardened. If yours was made in 1942 then I would think it would be the same.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most
