Default "M" Stamp on 1911 Slide

Hey, I have the exact same "M" stamp on my Springfield WWI slide. I can't get helpful answers about it either. Everyone says there should be a "P" or no mark on the top of mine. It's the exact shape and angle as yours.
Anybody out there find anything out about this yet?
I just bought a Clawson's book on 1911's, but I'm guessing it may not be in there. I'll see when it gets here.

flyboy, welcome to the FTF. Might I suggest a stop by the "Introductions" area and say "Hi"?

Hey, I have the exact same marking on my WWI Springfield 1911 slide. Nobody can tell me anything about it. Would be cool if there's some history to talk about with the mark. Did you ever find anything out on your end?

Default I Have a Springfield 1911 With Same Mark

I have not gotten any good answers to this yet, but will keep asking.
thanks!
