The thing that makes this topic complicated. When you read the actual Army and Marine documents from about 1928 to WWII, everyone had a different opinion on whether the low numbers were safe or not. They were just as divided back then as we are now.

The other thing too. Just because it's a high number doesn't automatically mean it's safe. The Marines had just as much problems with the high number receivers failing the rockwell hardness test, the same as low number recievers.

That is why high number receivers got the hatcher holes in the Marines, the same as the low numbers. Because they had problems with them all.
