    You are very welcome! It's good you stopped to remove the butt plate, I don't want you to damage the screws. With "original disc" I meant the original disc of the rifle, not the added disc with the "MP" marking. The area between these two discs is important, I have marked the area in the photo, there should be the branch of service (H, M or L) marking. Maybe it's still slightly visible when you take a good photo.

    It is very hard to see any mark. I tried to get a close up the best that I could. Maybe you can see something

    Thank you for all of the help. Sorry I have been out of town with no computer access. After all I have learned the next question is value? I have been around guns for a long time and only have seen one AR mauser in my lifetime. I know they made many does that make mine a hard to fine manufacture? Also since it was a commonwealth capture and all matching does that add value to? I realize that the rifle is not pristine
