Default question on stamping

I have several items...bayonets,holsters,etc with a stamping BK in a circle or a square. I should know this but never took the time to find out.What does this stand for? Thanks in advance. Dick.

If the items look like AK stuff, chances are the circled BK is "Vojna Kontrola" = military inspection. The cyrillic letter for V looks like B.

I believe the mark is Yugo..one of my Yugo M57 holsters has the BK mark. Dick

It is. The deciphered reading above is in Serbo-Croatian.

If so, my mistake. BK being BK, I saw the letters on the ricasso but could not make em out.
