    Co-worker picked up a Mauser K98, it a sporter stock that was modified to fit it; but, he has questions on the marking on the barrel.

    Top has 3 Nazi eagle logo with number 63 under each one. Bottom plate has a crown and sword and number 72 under the sword. It to other with crown and sword no numbers.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    Pics would help, doesn't sound like anything I've seen though.

    He has them on his phone only! I will see him Sunday and try get a better detail and will give him my email address as well to forward the pictures for some digestion.

    Also, he says the barrel is not 8mm; but, 30-06. Indication it is a post-occupation service and possible re-barreled based on the M1 Springfield 30-06 platform.
