I was curious about the filing of the rivet, so I check my 1939 S/42 SN 9330n. The rivet was filed as well. See pics.
This gun was captured by Col. Laurence C. Brown who commanded the 2nd Battalion and played a key role during the battle of Anzio.
Quote from the book Anzio, The Massacre at the Beachhead: "The Germans infiltrated behind 2nd Battalion, communications were cut and again and again the enemy got close enough to shower grenades into the gullies almost on top of the defenders. But the battalion had a commander, Lieutenant-Colonel Laurence C. Brown, who refused to allow himself to be dismayed."
Anyway, just sharing some good history about a very brave man who fought heroically for our country and fellow soldiers.
