    Great thread and posts BiO. Pic stickied.

    The e/135s on stamped parts invariably denote subcontracted parts. The others, as noted, usually show inspection and clearance/repair of some defect.

    I know what a few of these are- the 135 on the stamped rear band is typical on byf44/45 rifles with pressed metal upper band and C stock. Second is initial inspection for deletion of the machine operation at the rear of the receiver tang on L block byf44 rifles. The small 655 proof near the takedown disc also randomly shows up on a lot of rifles- it appears to be an inspection of the bolt takedown disc operation-- I have an armorers stock with the same proof there, and see them every now and then on standard production rifles. I've never figured out why MO sometimes used the E WaA135 stamp though.
