The stove pin is installed by gun plumbers, on all versions of the stove.
No sorry I have had stoves come direct from Coleman in a box with the pin.

Interesting information.
I used to command a 577 call sign 4B; Recce Sqn, RCD.
We had two 577's, 4A and 4B.
And we stencilled our call sign on almost everything we were issued, most vehicle crews did the same.

You could both be right. The military might have decided on the pin and retrofitted them to existing and new stoves. When another larger contract was placed, the pin may have been added in as a requirement.

This is plausible

I was working in a CQMS in the early 90s and in the mid-2000s, and the new stoves were sent from supply to the Weapons Techs. They would install the pin, then return the stoves to supply for distribution.
