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.

TC Contender Barrel Markings

The Maltese Cross and star markings indicate that the barrel has undergone certain production operations during the manufacturing process such as heat treating or various tolerance inspections. Looking into the breach end of the barrel, the star is usually found on the left side of the barrel lug, the cross on the bottom and, on the right side, the letter or number code for a particular caliber. As examples - A - 22 LR, H - .357 MAG, J - .35 Remington, K - .41 MAG, P - .45 ACP, 1 - 44 MAG, 2 - .30-.30, etc.
