Probably not. Stampings were almost always done after completion of the part, sometimes even after final assembly and finishing of the gun (the Ordnance "belt" on M1911A1 pistols was stamped through the Parkerizing).

I doubt we will ever know that kind of detail, but that "pony" was lightly stamped, even on civilian guns. Maybe Guinness will provide pictures so we can see the overall condition of the gun and try to provide a better answer.
