    Default Markings on a Makarov magazine?

    I am going through some magazines and this one caught my eye. It must have gotten dented and someone tried to "fix" it. I noticed quite a few stamps on it and found it interesting. Any ideas on significanceClick image for larger version.

    Appears to be a Russian military marked magazine....at least to my eye.
    My idea of border control is m-60 machineguns every 100yds with interlocking fields of fire.

    I agree with LANT. It is the pattern of magazine used from 1953-54 until 1973-74. The numbers stamped on the spine are the serial number and the "2" underneath means it was the second of 2 magazines issued with that pistol. The other marks are quality and control marks. It seems that the earlier the Makarov, and magazine in this case, the more stamps. Yours has a lot of stamps. Cheers, ABTOMAT
