Thank you for any help!

It will say "sar48." And you could call to see if it was sold as a bare receiver or not.

Thank you Vince, I suspect this particular gun was a preban standert SAR 48 and put a heavy kit on it, is there any way to distinguish.. like Identification markings that would help to validate.

you really can't, because all Springfield Armory did was to stuff a FALO kit on a SAR 48 receiver. You could call and ask but I understand they no longer can (or will) give info on what configuration the guns originally sold as.

Over the years, I've converted SAR 48 FALOs to standard, and para, and SAR 48 standards to FALO.
