    Help Identify this Marking

    I just discovered that the bottom edge of the receiver is stamped with a letter B. It on the right side in front of forward leg. Any ideas what this mark means?

      Thanks TJT! Is this mark common on most receivers? I searched but could not find any info on these marks.

        Some have it, or a different letter or number, some have none. If you're asking is it rare or make your rifle worth more $$, the answer is a resounding "NO".

          No, just trying to learn more about the markings. I really enjoy learning everything I can about these rifles. BTW, I just ordered Canfields book to learn more!

            Canfield's book is good. Get Poyer's, Babcock's and Duff's books as well. You'll need them all to cross-reference and find out where the mistakes are. None of them are perfect. Then you need as much hands-on experience with all that you can look at. I've been at this game 40-plus years and I don't profess to know every thing.

              I will take your advise and get those books too in the near future. That is why I like the M1 so much - lots to study!

                However, stay away from Harrison's book. It's more wrong than right.

                    IMO I would not waste your money on Babcocks book. While it has nice pictures it is full of inaccuracys, I have not opened mine since I bought it

                        Canfield and Duff, can’t go wrong with them. Can not recommend enough.
