Am I correct?
After reviewing all of the documentation ...
The receiver (or barrreled action) was manufactured by Izhmash in 2003.
Proof Test firing occurred in 2007
Accuracy Testing happened on 21 May 2007
The carbine was final inspected by Legion on 07 June 2007.

Most significant markings are concentrated on the left-side of the receiver.
