I have a 1971 Trooper MKIII. And just noticed that under the top-strap, its marked either F3-10942 or F3-J0942. Almost looks like it was hand laser etched. Aside from a letter, does anyone have any clue what it could represent?
It was written with an electric pencil.
You sometimes see this done by an owner as identification if a gun is stolen.
They put the number on guns, TV's, and electronics.
Some police departments used to loan the electric pencils, and I seem to recall there was or is a national data base of who each number was used by.
On the bright side, at least they didn't put it on the outside of the frame.
