    Very nice honest rifle George. I'd like to pic sticky it as a bcd 43 for reference, would like some pics of the floorplate, triggerguard numbers, maybe a couple more if you get time.

    As for that marking, it isn't British. My bet is it is period German. Could it be an accuracy marking or something denoting some specific use, such as for sighting in on sighting machine or other such use? It was obviously done after the barrel was indexed.

    Cheers,
    HB
