Wait, I think I misread your original message...

The "F" markings...

Are they visible when the gun is assembled?

Savage DID apparently stamp model designations on hidden parts of the wood forearm and/or stock at various points in time, apparently so they could keep the stocks straight during the manufacturing process.

But, as I noted, Savage did not mark the rifles with a model letter designation in a visible spot on the receiver until after World War II.
