    Question Question: Letter Markings on Taurus Revolver Cylinder

    On my Taurus M94 revolver, I noticed some very tiny letters stamped into the muzzle side of the cylinder: an "M", a "J", and the number "9" (see thumbnail).

    Does anyone know what these represent? Not a very important question, I know, just curiosity more than anything else.

    Those are likely inventory control stamps and quality control inspectors' stamps, probably a combination of both.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    OK, I'll buy that one. Thanks! If anyone else has any ideas I'll listen.
