    Someone already answered your question in another post. Starting in 1963-64 arsenals etched their abbreviated initials on the reciver legs to identify the arsenal and year they were rebuilt at.
    As already stated yours was done at Letterkenny Army Depot Jan 1965. Before they started the practice of etching receiver legs they stamped the stocks to identify the arsenal. At one time these rifles were looked down upon, now some people actually collect them
