    Default Mauser C96

    Hello everyone I recently purchased a C96 Mauser Broom handle. I noticed that the front of the magazine well has some interesting markings. They are worn out but i can make out a J a 3, and a K. also the bolt is electro-penciled to match, it looks like a German font though. could it be that it went to a depot for a new bolt and was used in ww2 i'll post pics soon

    Im wondering if anyone has seen something similar

    It may have been a Unit Marking.
