I've never seen this mark. It's on top of bolt carrier and on a barrel flat.

Could someone fill me in on the original of these parts. Thanks in advance!

That could make sense as i've never had any argy parts. Should the barrel have a small machined "step" a few inches from the muzzle?

Any of the other parts have the same #..... Bolt.... Lower? :eek:
It's Argy for sure.

Bolt and carrier match. Lower does not. Barrel doesn't appear to have a number on it, but does have that proof on one of the flats.

No. G1 or Austrian lower. US grip. US SAI muzzle brake. US stock (CAI)

Step is correct, barrel steps from 15.5mm to 15mm for the Belgian style flash hider. Yours is probably ban era or ban state so no flash.

Can't tell from the pic, but the receiver is maybe Entreprise - Does it say Rifle 762 Israel Match? or Rifle 7.62 L1A1 . . .Look for an ABNI marking on it.

The bolt carrier marking should also be on the barrel flat under handguard ring. It is a stylized representation of a monument in Rosario, Argentina.

Thanks Mark. Yep, it's an Entreprise ABNI and says Rifle 7.62mm.

Mark what’s your opinion of these receivers?

My opinion of the Entreprise ABNI and Israeli Match receivers is very good. Some may have some fitting issues during building, but once built seem to be rock solid. YMMV

They are not perfect, despite recent mythology, but they are pretty damn good. Biggest problem I've found on some (and this was in the mid 90s) was the front to rear distance on the mag well was too long - front notch too far forward. Result is bolt over base or even the mag falling out under recoil. work-around was to weld a .03" extension on the mag catch. Considering some of the problems with current DSA and coonan, I'd rank the ABNI above either, but still below IMBEL.
