    I have seen the same marking on a mates Yugoslav mauser. But under the soviet era they probably lots of bits for each other..perhaps. I dont know its meaning.

    (and your pictures are very good!)
    "As above so below"-an ancient text meaning as you think it shall be.
    "To be really happy and really safe one ought to have two or three hobbies and they should all be real".--Churchill.

      Just to confirm, what is the first pic? The second looks like a 5 inside of a trapezoid. Got a pic of the whole thing? What threads does it have? You sure it's not a AKML Flash Hider?

        Anyone think that last one could be an Izhevsk triangle?

          While not 100 percent, I think it probably not Polish. Their usual proof mark is an "11" inside an oval.

            Yeah stan and the 'Circle 11' is usually fairly large and prominent

            Yeah that first marking is definately not Russian with a better photo. Can you tell whether its a character or numeral? Looks like it could either be a '5' or a lowercase Cyrillic 'b'

            Serbian alphabet is very close to Russian cyrillic, only a few characters difference

              At first I thought the 5 inside the trapezoid was Russian, but I couldn't find anything with that style nor had I seen it before. Only the Serbs use that style D as far as I'm aware. It's also Latin not Cyrillic. Looks like this: Đ

            Good info Tornado. I thought the character inside the trapezoid (as you accurately called it) could have been this: Б (Be) in Serbian Cyrillic, unless it is a numeral 5
