There is also a "R" on the bottom of the barrel by the chamber, and what looks like a "D2", then a DEEP stamped C or G, then 3 of the same inspectors marks. but from what i read, the # and the letter in the inspectors marks should be reversed

also, whats the story behind "Fianna Fail"? from what i read, thts the stamp they lapped on rifles they gave the Irish.
