1910 -1934 Mauser not Enhlish made
« on: March 02, 2014, 02:02:49 AM »
My Mauser has "not English made " stamped on the frame. Was told that after the  WW11 these pistols were confiscated and stamped.
Anymore answers on this from anyone?

I am not positive but I believe this marking was made before or during WWII not after. All small arms were confiscated from occupied Germany post WWII but not all were marked this way. It is definatly a British marking. I do not know why the British chose to use this marking insted of just  using British proof marks.
