Default Flaming Bomb on Carbine Slide?

I am looking at a 6 million series Winchester and it has a flaming bomb stamp on the slide. I have never seen the bomb stamped on the slide. Any information appreciated.

Who made the slide? FWIW the bombs are quite common on slides made at Grand Rapids

Thanks for the info, Meplat.

Pretty sure I have one on a 1.4 Underwood.

I don't recall seeing one on the arm before, but I know I have one with a light flaming bomb on the top near the handle, and IIRC it's an Underwood.

If you could post a picture of the inside of the slide that would help

Many early manufacturers had bombs on various parts. Guessing, the slide is an early type, S'G', IP, U. The bomb on the slide can be on the outside or inside.
On a six million Winchester, you would want a long dwell type 5 slide. The later parts were improved for a reason. They work better.
