I found this in my parts box, don't know where it came from and can't find reference to that marking without another letter or two.

Although Riesch makes no mention of a "B" marked sear, his illustration of a Type II on page 83 (7th edition) is of a sear simply marked "B". Otherwise, I would expect it to be marked with an "I" or "N" as well.

The only BN marking I have observed is smaller, Has anyone observed a bigger font?

The Bl has a few variations. I have observed Bl, Bl, and B1. There may be a BI (serif I) as well? Anyone?

The larger Bl I have is in the opposite direction but the B is consistent.

Is it on an original gun? If so what make?

Dan, I posted this in another thread but I'll add it here as well.
This sear has what looks like a  BI  but its on the left side.
