Small Hand Engraved "R" on Barrel???

Can anyone explain the meaning of the small hand engraved looking "R" found on my barrel next to the .380 marking? I tried to search but had no luck.

Thank you

I think some one this forum had called ruger and they said it was a proof mark...

I was cleaning up my P94DC the other night and looked at it why I had it out and it has the same Proof Mark.

The stamp on the barrel is a proof mark placed on each barrel at the time of manufacture after the barrel has had a proof round fired through it. This proof round is to check the barrel for strength to assure it will not fail with standard factory ammunition.
