    1st vs. 2nd Model Reisings - Subtle Difference

    Greetings, all! I just finished reading Iannamico's The Reising Submachine Gun Story, and I'm interested in learning more about the differences between the 1st ("commercial") and 2nd ("military") variations of the M50.

    Mr. Iannamico documents numerous revisions made at the behest of the USMC, but after examining several photos of M50s across a wide array of serial numbers, it has come to my attention that another somewhat prominent difference may exist between the early and late guns; the soldering method used to attach the receiver studs seems to have been either automated, or at least greatly refined, throughout production.

    However, in order to help support/confirm/refute my speculation, I was wondering if y'all would be so kind as to post pictures of the receiver studs on your M50, M55, and M60 receivers. Thanks for your help!

    P.S. - Excuse the typo in the thread title!
