Hello Gentlemen,

 

I have a question about markings/stamps on a 1928A1 Thompson receiver.Does someone of you know what these stamps are standing for ?

The gun itself is a parts kit - could they be to show deactivation of the gun ? Thank you in advance for your help.

They look to be proof marks probably for deactivation. Is it possible to get a little closer and clearer picture of the area circled?

The British were know to proof fire and stamp ever gun they got there hands on.

They also stamped them when released from service.

Still hard to see what exactly the proof mark on the left is, but this site might help (not 100% sure it's relevant to Thompsons): http://www.shotguns.se/html/uk.html
