Speculating on the origin of these two M1s' drum cuts would be like trying to count angels on a pin head, but FWIW, it's not difficult operation to make the mods. As an aside, when I was in England this past summer, I found a place near South Moulton that had deac'd '28 TSMGs at £450, IIRC. They had a several of them and all were as nice and cherry-looking as could be, these guns being some of the Lend-Lease '28s originally given to the USSR.
