    I think I remember that some of the TAs were not stamped, they just had a std receiver with trap dimension wood & bbls. It also may be one that someone "built-up". Is it fixed or CTs? Ross Puls

    If the receiver lacks a trap stamping then the only way to know for sure is if the gun has the original box with a matching serial number. If there is no box I assume it is built up. Odds are it was. Functionally there is no difference in the receivers. There could be a difference for resell value.
