Mini folder washer location for pistol grip?

Can someone confirm for me the location of the star washer on a mini pistol grip? It is a factory Ruger Mini folder.

The factory manual diagram for an AC-556 Attached clearly shows it should be under the nut up inside the grip and not under screw head.

If you have a FACTORY folder, where is the grip star washer. Confirm as actual not just a guess or assumption.

Attached is an AC-556 manual which should be the same for the purpose of showing the location.

I need to know the actual location vs the manual.

Under screw head or under pistol grip.

Thanks.

Mine is embedded in the wood, under the screw head. Makes no sense to put it behind a captured nut, per the manual.

Not that I saw. Never had any issues though so it is a moot concern I suppose.
