Default .45 barrels

Were the government issued .45 ACP barrels marked with the words .45 Colt or .45 ACP or not at all? It's been years since I had one in my paws.

Thanks,

"Colt 45 Auto" on the left side with a P on lower lug
after the war it was a square box with a C stamped on the inside of square.

it depends on the manufacturer - visit coolgunsite .com and then click on ID pages and then barrels.

any of the books would have this too
