I have this indented wiggly line on my copper band RR, and I have found others that have it, too. This mark is not on my 1946 iron lever V4 RR. Does anyone know what caused it? One thing I thought of is a clamp/fixture may have caused it during manufacturing of the stock.

It is a piece of steel pressed into the stock for reinforcement. I do not know how many years Daisy used the process, however I have several different models with this feature. Usually there is one on each side of the stock in the same area and it is covered when the stock is installed on the Daisy.

The term for this item is a "Corrugated Staple". They used to be available in hardware stores.....maybe still are. They are typically used to repair a crack in a vital piece of wood where replacement is impractical. I've also have seen them used to reinforce furniture at stress points.
