View Full Version : Question about markings on a lower

May 10, 2009, 20:22
I have a rifle with a lower (UB 58 A4664) that is in a recessed oval. I have another BSA that was made in 58 also (UB 58 A11230) that is just stamped and not recessed. The first one looks a lot nicer. The block the hammer spring is stake with a series of puches in a circle. The second just looks pinched in. The last thing on the first one is:

S 1

The format is messed up the 5 and 8 are under the 1

on the popsicle stick in front of the grip. Is this some type of unit marking? Also the condition is so nice I doubt it ever saw field use much if at all . Why the diffrence in engaving?
