    Default M1 - Thoughts of handpainted marking

    Hi guys,

    I got this M1 swivel bail shell recently and would like to hear your thoughts about it.

    It has clearly had a second layer of green paint at one point but when do you think it was and what to make out of those two black painted stripes in the back, is it a rank or something else?


    Cheers
    Alex
