Here's an interesting read. It's an article between the Mil-spec, Loaded (brazil) and a Trophy match. It's an old article, but might give some insight on what's actually done. http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0BTT/is_149_24/ai_65910640/?tag=content;col1 This may still be how the "Brazil" Loaded's are still today: Seeing that the frame on the Trophy Match is "partially machined" i do not think it would have "Brazil" on it since >50% of the work is done in the US. Actually never saw (or heard of) a "Brazil" Trophy Match I would guess the same work would be done on the "NM" Loaded's Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
