I apologize if this has been covered previously, but what do the different markings/style of markings on these shrouds indicate/mean?

The 2 row roll marks indicate Monson factory production.

The 1 line roll marks indicate Palmer factory production

There is a laser etched 1 line mark that indicates Norwich factory production.

EWK barrel assemblies have a 1 line roll mark similar to the Palmer mark, but it is slightly larger and slightly different type font.

I wondered about that myself.

I think my 4″ V-H is a Norwich-made one.

I didn't know how to use it.”
