    Thank you very much for the data.

    The "Ha" is the abbreviation for the laminate supplier and 2 (day) 51 (week) 42 (year) means December 15, 1942. I was off by three days with my estimation.

    This rifle was likely assembled in early 1943 even though the date code states 2nd to last week of 1942.
    In my estimation the final assembly of the rifle could be days or weeks after the stock was completed.
    A more practical range would be 1-3 weeks after stock completion. I believed earlier that it could be months but my
    assumption is likely incorrect.

    I would appear that some letter blocks were completed in early 1943 as Paul surmises.
