    Bren Tripod Traverse Arc Markings? Yes No?

    I've looked over a couple of my traverse arcs and was not sure if they were marked or not, makers or whatever. Also are all of the traverse arcs about the same or ??
    Thanks for any info.

    Well spent a few minutes reviewing one of them and did not find any markings. Has anyone else found anything?
    Thanks for any help.

    Do you mean manufacturers marks? I think Iíve seen some marked. If you mean the Increments/scale, Iíve only seen slight variations between manufacturers.

    "Do you mean manufacturers marks?" Yes, I said makers marks, sorry about that.
    Also have there ever been any major/minor changes to the Traverse Arc? Blued, parked or ?
    I have a traverse are that has Major pitting on it and I was thinking about changing it out with another arc. But I'm always interested in "trying" to keep things correct and not mix apples with oranges. To often at any rate.
    Thanks for any help.

    Based on nothing more than observation, early BSA and CCM were initially blued, AGE appear to have been parked but after years of use and refurbs Iíve seen painted and parked so I really couldnít be sure.

    Well last night grabbed my "Mk2" tripod with the pitted out traverse top and switched it out with a loose one that I had and it sure looks better. As I was doing it I looked all over both of them and did not find any marks on either one of them and they both looked blue.
