This is not just accidentally under the stocks because it was stamped before assembly, but deliberately along the backstrap portion, very hidden from view unless searched for.
You might not notice them unless looking, under bright light, at low angles. They may be under the stocks, and on small guns, very often are completely or partly under the grip panels.Note that proofmarks are not highlighted; this has been emphasized with white crayon before imaging.It's still a bit of a mess, but if you are not seeing it, there's the proof house admission seal, the proof house pass seal, large letters apparently reading "T•1" below this.If the weapon survives a certain number of these, it passes, and all weapons in the lot get the proof mark to certify they meet the government's minimum expectations of function and safety.Though the US government has inspection processes for military goods, there is no proof house of any sort for domestic US gun makers.All the examples on this page are highlighted in crayon; yours will not be this visible. Pull those off (for many guns, like the Firestar, be careful not to move the safety as a plunger can become dislodged and fly away, lost forever when the grips are off) and look if you have no other luck.
At least one reader has a model PD with, apparently, the month and year of manufacture directly stamped on the frame.
Though 100% of armor in those early days was tested, this rapidly changed to batch testing, which is what we have now with most firearms.
A representative sample of each lot of weapons is tested with a proofing cartridge, which has vastly higher pressure than the normal specifications.
Although many other countries have military acceptance marks as well, I do not know their design; if anyone does know for sure, please send me a good quality photo or other reference information.
The three proof marks indicate receipt at the proof house, passing of proof, and the date of proofing.
Although I do not specifically address it, this should therefore work for Astras, Llamas, and any other handgun.
