Punch marks on rear of receiver
Just wondering what to make of the punch marks on this CMP auction carbine receiver. Obviously been through rebuild for EL Salvador use and who knows what other historic service. I just havn't seen the punch marks on the rear as these two marks are located.

from the looks where it is it to shadow line of something being there.......they could have riveted a plate or a tag in that area, maybe for a rack number?

The line is just a milling mark. On some carbines the milling in this section is crosswise while on others it is longitudinal. The punch marks look like hardness test marks to me.

You are correct, I did not read the location.
Actually that punch mark does not look like a high pressure test punch at all. Usually it is not rounded. I does look like the results of a hardness test.
