Default Mauser Ww1 German G98 butt disk unit marking info needed

Gentlemen,
I have a question, I have a Ww1 G98 Mauser all matching numbers 1904 dated and Danzig on the breech and on the right side small metal butt disc are these stamped markings, 91.RM.G.10. What unit or regiment do these represent? The G98 is standard early G98 configuration, langvisier ramp, Gew 98 to breach side, straight bolt handle, small kaiser stamps and last 2 of serial number to all parts, stock number matches serial, some parts in the white as per early G98. Wish I could post pictures but I can not work out how to, but anyway it is just a standard early 1904 Ww1 German Army G98 with no post Ww1 upgrades or markings so just a Ww1 capture. Anyone know what these marks on the disc mean, I would love to know. Thank you

For that identification to be correct there should be a space and or period between the R and the M

You are correct, there is indeed a period full stop between the R and the M. So that seems to answer my question, great to know these details and the regiment it belonged too. Thank you, to all who posted on this thread I appreciate it.

I have no criticism of the marking per se, but if it was mine I would want to do more research.

One thing that I think that I know but I could be wrong is that MG companies were not organic to regiments in the pre-war period. They were organized as detachments or Abtielungs and assigned to Corps and fortresses. Sometime near the start of the war they were largely broken up and included within the infantry regiments.

If this is in fact the case the 1904 rifle obtained this marking some 10 years after it was first issued. I wonder if the disk has another marking on the reverse side.

Also, I do not know the weapon authorization of a MG company. I would not have thought that it included G98s but again I could be very wrong.

Pictures should be attached on a free pictures sharing server and add here only links, or send it to other member, who could post it here. b.r.Andy
