I have seen the light, and it is a string

The other, less obvious, tell is the FJA stamp on the frame. That's the inspector's mark for Franklin J. Atwood, a name I'm familiar with because he's also the inspector mark on my Remington m1903. You can also find him on a few other guns, but he's all over Remington stuff.


So, I see inspectors pop up fairly frequently on milsurp discussions: what exactly were they doing when they take a gun under inspection? With the volume of guns that were being turned out during the middle of WWII, the inspector clearly can't have much time looking over each one. Are they doing a basic function check and if everything clicks right it gets sent out the door?
