Hi all, I have this 4.61 Rock-ola barreled receiver that I bought a while ago as a project. Looking at the barrel proof tonight, I think it may be a QHMC proof but I would like some opinions. The BR has been refinished at some point but the barrel looks like it's been there a while.

Here is a picture of the P on the RO BR:

Here is a reference P on a QHMC that I own.

Here is a reference P on another RO that I own (1.7). https://i.imgur.com/365FLzl.jpg

It's still a Rockola and valuable.
My sig: It's my opinion that we should've gone and kicked the crap out of the English again instead.

Definitely, in any case I think I got a fair deal on it and I'm happy to own it. Just wanted to get a better understanding of the differences between RO and QHMC proofs. These are quite similar as I see them in hand, with the presumed QHMC proof being a little more "plump". But I was also not sure if the RO proof changed at all between serial blocks. The barrel looking like it has been intact for a good while gets me scratching my head too.
