    Default OW marking on Gustloff buttstock near sling slot?

    Hello to all,

    There is an inscription I can barely decipher within the sling slot area of the buttstock of my SN 258127 Gustloff KKW. I would not have dwelt on it if it had not been for a similar OW marking found on another Gustloff KKW - SN 234155.

    I would be interested to know your opinion - could it be some kind of Gustloff in-house marking? Or could it be a GW marking for Gustloff Weimar?...

    Regards,

    Didier

    initial markings turn up on different K98's also. Consensus is inspectors initials stamped after cutout is completed for sling keeper.
