OK. So I have temporarilary gone brain dead. Can't recall what the markings on the upper receivers mean. I'm talking about the symbols like the "key hole" or "little pyramid looking thing". Whats the deal again? I know some receivers don't have any markings at all.

They are the forging marks to indentify the company who did the forging.

I remember they were forge markings but can someone tell me which markings go with what company? I know there are two or three. The most common seem to be the key hole and the little pyramid thing.
