Default Question about the 669 barrel roll mark "CDI SCTVL KY"

I've purchased a 669 and the barrel has a unusual roll mark "CDI SCTVL KY". I've been told they were an importer. Does anyone know the true story of this rollmark?
Any information is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Mark

Cole Distributing in Scottsville Kentucky seems to import many S&W and other pistols from Israel and has a large presence on Gunbroker.

I Googled "Israeli firearms proof marks" and got lots of pictures. No S&Ws though.

While I have heard of import marks stamped on a barrel, it sure seems odd or even wrong on a semiautomatic pistol where the barrel can easily be removed and separated from the frame.

Definitely a -LOT- of S&W having seen service in Israel, a ton of Tanfoglio also.

I think Mr. Cole retired in May of this year.

That is his import mark.

Cole was the only importer for the S&W semi's that I know of. He used to set up at the Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot a few years ago and he had a ton of Israeli Smiths for sale.
