Common Name

There are lots of guns which are genuine US Property which did not receive an M designation.

Shotguns are a fine example.  They're simply referred to by their commercial names.

We'd call it Commercial Of The Shelf (COTS) today.

Confusing the matter is that it's common to abbreviate 'Model' with an M.

Winchester, for example never made an M70.  They made/make a Model 70.

It's a morass.
