I'm not sure if it's the same Armasteel or not, but, General Motors developed a cast iron alloy for automotive engine & drive train parts they called armasteel. I have a couple Armasteel stamped Pontiac crankshafts. Maybe that will point you in the right direction.

Speaking of Pontiac, your username, cammer, is that Pontiac OHC 6 related?

Before you think about welding any pressure bearing or critical part of a firearm I would run the idea past a QUALIFIED gunsmith. Many "old" shotguns are at or beyond their pressure limits when using modern ammunition, and anything that would further weaken them could prove extremely dangerous, so play it careful and don't become another involuntary accident statistic. Regards,
Combustor.

Well, I was close-ish... I had the SOHC part of it right.

I agree with Combustor too, if it's a critical part, you should find a grey-haired gunsmith to at least look at it.

this is the very back that the stock screws to. i have been drag racing for 55 years with 427 ( FORDS ) i have heard it all from you follow the heard never had a original thought guys with book from gm gumball machine part dispenser. with fe fords you have to use your brain to make them run not just write a check i enjoy a challenge. chevrolet stands for . cranks-hard-every-valve- rattles-oil-leaks-every-time .ford stands for. fierce-ornery-rugged-dependable. ____ing -old-recycled -dodge. flip-over-read-directions.first-on-race-day.backwards driver-returns-on-foot-found -on-road-dead.please use your own brain come up with something new.
