+1, that's a good heel stamp any way you look at it.

I might have spoken too soon and jinxed myself slightly. I took the rifle apart to clean, inspect and lubricate the internals and found that the operating rod catch was busted:


It is not a huge deal, but I don't have a spare lying around. I am surprised that the armorer that built this rifle either didn't notice that the part was obviously broken or just went ahead and installed it anyway. The broken piece that is missing from the part was not in the rifle or case, so I assume it must've been broken before it was installed. I emailed CMP and I am sure they will replace it quickly.

On the bright side, I did not initially notice the lead annealed receiver heel until now. It looks pretty good in the light:


Overall, I am pretty happy with this one and I can't wait to get it to the range and see how it groups.
