Default Op-rod question

What/who manufactured an operating rod that has drawing number and other number under (not GI?) like this?

Thank you for any/all assistance.
Be well, God bless.

nf1e:

Am I recalling incorrectly???
Were there "reproduction" Op rods marked with the Winchester "66118?"

Or am I thinking of bolts???

I was just wondering. It appears to function properly. I’m far from experienced on this platform and am more or less just curious about what I’ve got here to be caretaker of. She’s a 64425 ser#SAI. I have read somewhere that ALL GI operating rods (M14) were a single-line with perhaps a letter code or some such.
And hello Ernie! I AM interested in that barrel for my brother.

I don't remember any repros with the Winny numbers, but then memory is such a small thing.
There were op-rods with the part number only by RWB. And others with no numbers.
