I haven't filled out my reg form yet, but I thought the "or Country of Origin" was for imported rifles where it wasn't clear who the manufacturer was. This might be the case for military surplus made in countries where all firearms are made in state run factories and they don't stamp a company name on them. Just a guess on my part, though.
I had this issue way back when I tried to submit my SA-85 along with my BushMaster Ar15... I wrote in "Hungary" and they sent it back as incomplete! They also said that the SA-85 wasn't on their list of AW's?, but that I could still register it if I completed the form correctly and re-sent it. I said screw it and sent it off to Florida. They accepted the Bushmaster without any issues.
It wasn't until about 2-3 years ago when I figured out it was FEG who made the SA-85. Back then I didn't know a whole lot about this kinda stuff, still don't know that much
