    Need ID- 98 Mauser barrel makers or inspection mark

    Need ID on a makers or inspection mark on an 8MM 98 Mauser barrel. Has several of these marks on the barrel, rear sight base and front sight base. No other markings or WWII Germanicon marks found. Symbol looks like a bird in a circle. Thx.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    Not that it helps a lot, but I think that the symbol is a bee. Seen it somewhere, no idea where!

    That seems to be a Mauser marking that shows up from time to time.
    I have virtually the same marking on the frame of my 1944 Mauser made P38.
    It's reminiscent of the "Bug" proofs used on pre-WWI Mauser made Lugers.
    It has been implied on another forum that marking was applied to items that failed inspection but were corrected and cleared for use.
    I have no way to prove or disprove that statement.
    This stamping is located in the channel for the hammer above the grip on the frame.
