    As far as I know, if the stamping is that far down, it was applied in order to be visible under a scope mount and is an original.

    Couldnít speak to the originality of the other bits and bobs.

    And theyíll be free to reason that youíve now attempted to deface the markings on, what they perceive as, a machine gun.

    Pretty poor advice.

    Nothing on rifle A.

    Nothing on rifle B but it is amongst a lot of receivers that the DCM sold in and around 1938. Nothing on the serial number etched into this bolt either.

    Pretty sure that came into effect in 1968. Anything imported before that didnít need it.

    Also, I donít think thereís any law that prevents someone from removing an import mark.
