Sure! Thanks for pointing that out as well, it does nothing to educate if we do not point out the specifics.
For this bolt there are several cues. First and foremost if the MB firing mark. Second is the cap. Third is the clasping hands on the safety. Fourth is the Font, location, and 4 digit serial number marked on the bolt handle. Fifth is styling and finish of the bolt and handle.
The clasped hands, and what looks like a cockade cap, are taken from the Argentine crest, and can be found in several locations on 1909 rifles and carbines. Rifles had straight bolt handles, and carbines had curved handles. The early ones were made by DWM in Germany, later carbines were produced in Argentina. Your bolt was made by DWM.
Appreciate the info very much. From Both of you.
Can it be assumed that tho made by DWM, it was marked by Argentina??? or did DWM do the Marking at MFG.?
As you may/may not gather, I am slowly putting together a Pictorial of various Bolts and Markings..as this area intrigues me.. While Not extensive at this point...I am Striving for Accuracy!!
Thanks again to All...
