I've seen that mark on other handles but can't remember what foundry it's from. Just curious. Is there something wrong with it? If it works it really doesn't matter who made it.

I have an upper and a few others have that forge mark but nobody is for sure who it is.

The Bushie carry handle I bought not to long ago has the Cardinal on it. Never seen a square forge mark before.

I just received a carry handle from Brownells with the square forge mark. It was advertized as a DPMS on the Brownells web site.

I have one with the same marking. It's off a Bushy.

My DPMS carry handle has a cardinal on it.

There can be several forge marks on uppers & carry handles sold from the same manufacturer so forge marks alone are not a good indicator of who the finishing party is.

+1`

One thing you can watch out for is how far around the elevation wheel goes. On a properly constucted top, it should go 360 degrees, so that the 3/6 mark ends up where it started. DPMS for some reason builds (or at least did build) their pieces with one minute clicks; so that the wheel only goes about halfway around. Which means that the range markings on the wheel are useless, since they're calibrated for half minute elevation clicks

I have never seen that forge mark, either. I have been around AR's for a long time, and this mark is new to me.

mine rotates more than 360 degrees. I am new to firearms and new to this siting system so i will have to play around with if for a bit.
