Hammer & Trigger Country of Origin?

Just received a Hammer & Trigger that has a "C" Stamped on them (the "C" on the Trigger is kind of shaded to see...I tilted it up a little to give a better reflection)

Anyone recognize the Country of Origin?




Thanks!

Hey, look on the bright side. You're about 1/3 of the way to 922R compliance with these.

Don't give up, my C marked hts works fine and I'm still using them. May be "luck of the draw", but I have heard other members say the same over the years, surprising as that seems.

Same here. Surprisingly the HTS and Pistol Grips from Century are actually well made. There was an earlier set of Century HTS that had smaller holes for the pins, but when you chased them it worked fine. However, those with the embossed "C" are usually the later version.

Over the years I have had less failed Century HTS sets than DSA or FSE. It goes against the norm, but itís the truth.
