    That was part of the program's...

    The "law enforcement" rifles imported by Century Arms in the early 90s were marked on the barrel.

    Fancy add-ons for '03 target sights?

    Could that "A4" etched mark really be AA? Sounds to me like an arsenal rebuild (perhaps Anniston?) of September 1964, especially with a Springfield barrel from March of 1963.
