Armscorp receiver lettering on operating rod rail

Did all armscorp receivers have lettering of some type on the operating rod rail?

This one don't have any lettering of any kind on the op rail

What if any significance does it mean if it has or does not have the lettering

Judging by the serial number this receiver was probably made around mid 1994. It's difficult to say whether it was purposely made without the rail markings or an anomaly without examples of other receivers in the same serial number range.

The legality of the lack of marking was discussed in another thread last week and determined to be legal as the ATF only requires a serial number although the name and location is generally required to be present when manufactured. The owners question is whether it's legal and it is.
