My all USGI 1993 Springfield does not have the caliber stamped on the receiver like some do. I've seen M14 marked, 6.62x51 marked, etc. Anyone care to share the differences?

SAI dropped the 7.62MM stamping at some point, I'm not sure when, early 90s I think. The problem was that they were offering rifles in other calibers, notably 243 Win.

They also had a batch that read "Springfield Amrory".

I have 2 preban SA rifles with 762mm on the receiver made in 1989 & 1990.

Springfield Armory, Inc. (actually Valley Ordnance Co.) dropped the 7.62mm caliber marking between M1A receiver serial numbers 063000 and 063112.
