Default 1917 stamping question

I recently saw this on a S&W 1917 and wondered what it was or meant? I did a Google Lens search on it and it wouldn't recognize it.

That is the early inspection stamp replaced by the flaming hand grenade (often mistakenly called flaming bomb) stamp at about # 40,000.
