    Not sure which mark exactly you're asking about but every mark I can see in the photo is exactly what I'd expect to see. Looks fine to my eyes.

    well, i found this on GunBoards trying to research K98 barrel codes:

    "dot (shield 11 or 13) logo – Waffen Werke AG, Brünn (Brno)"

    this was listed as a "finisher" code, so it does seem to match the "dot 13" shield marking

    anyone know about the "CV" marking?

    Someone with more knowledge will probably jump in but I believe both works made most of their barrels completely (blanks and finishing). I think it's their version of the lot code.

    found this older post on the forum which shows "CJ" on the barrel of a DOT 43 vice "CV"
