In manufacturing a lot of a specific parts that is ongoing Quality Control (QC) will grab a certain amount parts and scrutinize several parts to prove there were no slip ups and in tolerance. If all are within tolerances QC will give the go ahead to continue production. QC will continue pull random parts to prove parts are in tolerance. If a part is found to be out of tolerance QC will be stuck examining many or all until parts in that lot until good parts are constantly within tolerance then
production will continue.

With firearms it is a serious business. God forbid someone is hurt or worse du to poor workmanship.

I personally suspect that wasn't being done constantly by the initial runs by Remington. Hence, the term 'Remlins' as in Gremlins.

Fair enough, but it would be nice to know what they mean. There is also 2 what look like centre punch strikes , one can be seen at the bottom of the first pic?

Probably the marks from hardness testing during the production process :unsure:.

What Granpa Grump said. The dimples are from a Rockwell 'C' Hardness tester. It uses a pointed diamond pressed to a sample of smooth metal. The deeper the punch the softer the metal.
