Yet another bolt carrier in need of being ID'ed

Ok, I could not get pictures of the carrier from another question -- it was a friend's not mine -- but I did find another that is in need of some info. On the pictures it is the rougher machined one (bottom one in the first picture; the other one is an Enfield one).

The sand cuts on the bottom do not match those in an Enfield carrier. Inside the bolt, the area in front of the ramp that is machined inside the bolt near the rat's tail hole is U-shaped instead of being straight like the Enfield. Why?

And on the top there is a Crown with a ER and then a P stamped around crossed swords and then further down what seems to be a "C"

I found no serial or part numbers as I would expect in a L1A1 bolt. So, is this a DSArms carrier or something?

Interesting, I do not know if you can see the top picture, but the Enfield carrier also seems to have single cam.

OLDMANPBK, I can see the double cam in the bolt pictures you posted, but I honestly do not see it in the bolt carrier one.

Here's a different view. Note the wear pattern.
