Refurb or QC proof mark
« on: September 04, 2021, 02:08:00 PM »
Checking out the usual forums and YJ's with differing opinions. Does this diamond stamp indicate a QC proof mark, or is it a refurb?

There are no upper receiver cover qual markings. Minus the arsenal mark and date, came from the arsenals clean as a baby’s bottom.  thumb1

The link below is your best online source for Russian refurbishment markings. As pcke and Alex point out, the diamond marking is currently in the unidentified category, with respect to location and ABF number, but it is clearly a refurbishment marking. YJ's site is full of out-of-date (euphemism for wrong) information, so it's a bit of a minefield.
