Looks DSA. Only other aftermarket was FSA? And it was marked

I would say DSA. The only difference I can see from mine is the mill mark on the stock side of the recoil plate and that just might not be showing up in your pic.

Oh great,....a loose DSA trigger housing. Separated from the upper receiver I doubt there's any way to know whether it's subject to the recall or not(but why would it be loose otherwise?).

No marking like that on this..

Some flycutter markings visible on the side flats, tho.

Looks just like the two I have. If there are any small unique markings I'll be happy to take a closer look at mine for a better comparison - I'm really just going off the selector markings and the grip boss.

I have a 2012 vintage DSA, and it looks just like the OPís, and doesnít have the mill mark pictured above.

2012 is the year my SA58 was made. But I haven't shot it yet so I don't know if it actually capable of doing so.

The FN made Hiduminium trigger saddles were riveted in place as were the front hinge dust shield. The dust shield also has the 2 rivet heads protruding from bottom a little bit, unlike the one in the picture. I looked at one today to check and should have taken some pictures. Next time I get it out I will.

I thought as much, but it's been a long time since I've seen one. I'm pretty sure the pictured unit is a DSA, but I can't point to any particular feature that demonstrates it - it's just I've handled enough of them to subconsciously "know".

Pics of the dust shield area will confirm if it's a DSA.
