Beretta 38/42 receiver end cap

Just guessing here:

I have a Yugoslav M49/57 the upper receiver design of which is based on the Beretta 38 series. The recoil spring guide/damper assy on the Yugo has two rearward facing lugs on the end plate which fit into recesses in the cap when the cap is secured in the locked position. The holes in your end cap may provide a similar function. The differences between the two end caps in the most recent image posted could be due to the fact that Beretta revised the recoil spring guide/damper assy at least twice during the production of the 38 series and not all versions would necessarily have locked up in the same manner.Damper.JPG
