    punches m14

    Hello
    the weapon in question is HR and there are punches that I did not understand what they mean, two are placed on the bolt and are A16 and BJE and the other on the receiver, that "AR" immediately after the identification number of the receiver
    if anyone has any information, it makes me a pleasure
    thank you so much

    Pictures didn't show.
    Try rummaging around here. I'm not seeing an M14icon markings site anywhere.

    Assuming the bolt is also made by H&R, it will have markings like the lower one in this photo.
    The number on top is the drawing number. THis identifies the blueprint the part is drawn on.
    H&R bolts can have an "HRA" if the bolt was made in house, and "HRT" if was subcontracted. Textile Machine Works was the subcontractor.
    The remaining markings are the heat lot number for the steel the bolt was made from.


    On the receiver, the markings for a H&R made M14icon should look like the receiver on the left. There should be no letter suffix.

    thank you so much for the explanation
    another thing, the gas cylinders were burnished even if they were made of stainless steel or not?
    PS: the images I uploaded are seen? thank you so much

    Gas cylinders were not burnished, they were finished dark. Bright ones are just those whose finish has worn off.

    Real men measure once and cut.
