Default Colt Service Grade Received...a Question, or Two

Received a very nice SG Colt today, looks new. Serial is 116614X. It has an SA stamped on the side so it went thru Springfield Armory prior to 1968. It also has a TZ slide and 85 dated TZ barrel, but no other rebuild stamps. There is a very small 96 stamped on the flat side of the trigger guard where it joins the bottom of the frame. Who might have rebuilt this with fresh park and not put their stamp on it? There is park in the SA letters. Very happy with this and will be at the range this week...And going thru Poyers big book I don't see anything on post war rebuilds or contract parts. Is there anything in the book about this?

I found what I think are arsenal rebuild marks also on the trigger guard on the opposite side of the 96. They are a K and a small triangle. Any idea what arsenal this is?

Trigger guard markings are from Colt and are not Depot overhaul/rebuild marks.

Airborne,
