What does the stamped "star" on the lug of a T/C barrel indicate?
Are there any other barrel stampings that are significant and should be known?
Thanks

Is a star stamped within a square and indicator of a stainless barrel?

I wondered about that for years. It may be an inspection mark for the welding or to make sure the carbon steel and stainless lugs do not get mixed before they are welded but those are just guesses.
