Barrel retains a vertical non-serifed "H" on
the rear of the hood. Serial number 957 is on the rear
of the sleeve and a "P" is stamped on the right rear of the
lug. Sleeve is strategically located in order for the
1911 center fire firing pin to function with the .22 LR rim
fire cartridge and so that the extractor will also remove
the spent .22 cartridge case.
Horizontal partial number "5" is present on
upper right flat of left side of barrel lug.
