The welds don't look right to me. If you take out the screw and pinch it, does it spring back?

It depends on the heat setting on the welder. I have seen spot welds like that. I doubt there is any way to tell from the weld scars because the next shift could have changed the heat setting on the welding machine and the spot welds will look light as your second picture.
A type 1 band on an Inland 2-44 is right at the end. Many Inland 2-44 barrels will have a T-2 band.

LS6man posted pictures of his band and the spot welds look like yours. Maybe the band is an early Inland.

The band in question I believe came off a quality hardware or a Saginaw both had inland barrels if I remember correctly
I just bought a Un-quality barreled receiver off the forum I'm debating putting this on it

I see your point on the welds Roger, but a number of the "good" repro bands i've seen have that type of weld. I don't think I've seen a repro with a full, smooth weld. With the newer looking finish, wanted to try the spring test as that is usually a solid indicator given part in hand.

With the spring test in mind, if you look at the OP's 4th picture, the band doesn't even come all the way back up to the head of the screw. Plus there is still room to unscrew the screw even more, to me showing a lack of "spring". I have had a band from George at River Bank and it was just like this. Something to consider.

I really don't see anything wrong with the screw not starting flat on the band. I would agree if the opening was tight on the swivel meaning the opening was too small.
Bottom line is reproductions are getting better. I have one NIW I will check out and post pictures.
