    A few more pictures for your enjoyment. These pictures were taken Circa 1960 or so.

      Great photos. Thank you.
      "...But they would never find anything to beat the old Springfield ...the long sleek streamline, very slim but with potent bulges, all in the just exactly right places to give it that pugnaciously forward-leaning, eager look that marked the Springfield. Beside it, the M1 looked like a fat old man puffing with a lack of training...the two most beautiful things made in America were the ax-handle and the clipper ship? ...they should have added one more thing: The Springfield '03 rifle..."

          Pretty sure it's the date code.

          Google search "Remington BLACKPOWDERX"

            DN is the barrel manufacture date:

            D: September
            N: 1966

            Not sure about the U. Most M40 from the original batch (DN, or close) have it.
