After I found my eagle proofed bolt hold open (http://www.falfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=420651) recently I’ve been looking more closely at my Belgian Fal parts. So the other day I came across this…..… look close at the upper left side of the end of the grip? Do you see what I want to see? If it is, I’ve never seen one before. :biggrin:….

Looks like wishful thinking to me. May want to get those specs cleaned :cool:. I do see what you see, but that could be from use/abuse. It's enough to make me take a gander at mine though.

Methinks it's kind of like the Madonna on a biscuit, all is in the eye of the beholder.

To me this looks like grit and some deformation from age and abuse (and don't we all have that problem?).

If I had to speculate on the matter and anthropomorphize your PG, I'd say it's been taken over by the spirit of Super Mario.

Wipe a little water on it. Rotate it in the light and that eagle may come forward. It took me a loooooooong time to isolate a |8| on a B stock that folks swore wasn't there.....it was there and I captured a perfectly focused pic of it too.

I took nwobhm's advice and used a little water. So my Doubting Thomas', what do you think?

Sure, I will post asap. After the water it looks even more like a stamp..at least to me it does...:biggrin:...

To get a little better view take a flashlight and shine it at nearly a 90deg angle to what you believe is the stamp, and turn the flash off of your camera. This will highlight the high and low points and allow for a more conclusive pic.

In my work one of the tests we do involves a pressure blow-down through the surface of a piece of rock to determine how permeable it is. Rock often has tiny fractures that cannot be seen when the lighting comes from directly above because all the rock is the same color (typically dark) and the small fractures simply have no shadow to make them visible. By shining a light at a severe angle to the surface the fractures become quite obvious and we know where not to test. While the application is different, the reasoning and results should be the same.

Illuminati... every damned time.:mad:

G3, at this point and in lieu of better photo documentation, I give it a 50% chance of that actually being anything of note.

Oh Lord, tough crowd...LMAO, that is why I love it here. Yeah, I've tried and can't get a better photo. I only have my phone so it is what it is....:facepalm:...

This is what I thought it looks like as shown on this bolt hold open I recently found in my G1 parts. The Bundeswehr eagle proof.
