Does the lower receiver serial number match?

The upper and lower are both stamped "249". See picture. I assume that is the matching assembly number. The actual serial of the receiver is M6813. I do see M6813 on the bolt release lever.

The serial number on the lower is stamped or engraved at the top of the back end of the lower directly above the front of the butt.

may I have a picture?

No, not exactly. The back of the lower where it pins to the upper should have a number which matches. 

The number you pictured is, I believe, the issue number for the country that at some point issued it.
