The address 12106 RADIUM SA TEX 78216 was the third of three barrel markings for Springfield Armory when it was owned by Mr. Elmer Balance of Texas. These barrels were stamped in 1974 just before the company was sold to the Reese family in Illinois. Receivers with serial numbers higher than 002780 were sold by Springfield Armory in Illinois.
