Where do the importers put their markings on these? Mine has a black paint all over the metal parts and I can't find it. All I see is a crown with england below it on the front right side of the receiver . and a W on the rear left on the back.

It all depends

on when it was brought in. Before 1968, it won't have any markings. After, they vary.
Some are minutely small, below the wood on the receiver, or hidden elsewhere, later, on the muzzle in larger type, and now, billboard type fonts in the most ludicrous places that offend the senses; done for no other reason but to stick it in our eye.

Mine that are marked have tiny stamps on the bottom side of the barrel by the muzzle. Even without paint they're hard to see. FWIW they're Century imports.
