Two other marks of interest are the GP (Gunmakers' Proof) mark of the London proof house, and the broad arrow, the British government property mark.

By U.S. law since the late 19th century, all commercially imported products must be marked with the country of origin (COO). An exception was made for firearms in 1968; those must be now marked with the name and address of the importer and the caliber. The ENGLAND marking means that the rifle was imported prior to 1968.
