My 37 is stamped "Stellbilt." Seems odd, when they meant steel bilt. Did they really do this intentionally as a trademark variation? Bilt makes sense, but stell?

The Model 37 was a break-action single-barrel shotgun with an exposed hammer. This exposed hammer earned the Model 37's hammer the nickname of Pigtail due to its resemblance to one. The weapon was constructed mostly out of steel, which earned it the nickname Steelbilt
Early Model 37s had the word "WINCHESTER" stamped on the receiver, notably highlighted in red letters; these shotguns were known as Red Letter Model 37s. By 1948 the red highlights were no longer applied.
Misspelled or someone tried to add it and go it wrong.
