Default rear handguard markings

Got what looks like barrel markings imprinted inside my rear handguard. Anyone ever seen this before?
Thanks,

Yes, knew it's Overton. Didn't know they had stamps inside the guard?

Can't read the markings from the pic. Do these appear to be drawing numbers?

really hard to read, numbers & letters. Camera is not the best for close ups

I wonder if its the drawing numbers and such from the top of the barrel just superimposed onto the guard ?

Might try some chalk or powder to see if that brings it out.

Yep, right size font, length, & right where the handguard sits. Must have been softer wood or was too tight to the barrel, or it got too hot.
Problem solved...
