    K98 Belgian captured barrel?

    Hello all,

    I picked this barrel up at a local flea market and was hoping I could find exactly which weapon this may have come from. It has Belgian mfg. marks from the research I pulled up with German sight assembly. The barrel itself has been remarked to match the serial number on the sight assembly. There is also a Weimar/ early TR waffenamt on the rear barrel next to the Belgian marks. Of note is the 7.9 MR marking (or MB) marking.

    Does this belong to a Model 24 or 30?

    Thank you!

    They're Belgian but I believe postwar, liken to the British for importation/exportation purposes....Bodes

      They are Belgian proof marks in the sense that every weapon that is imported in Belgian has to have them. You can more of less figure out in which period it was stamped by analyzing the markings but it usually takes some digging on the web. These are not production stamps however, the barrel has not been made in Belgium.

        Hello,


        I did look them up a month ago. From what I read ai thought they were manufacturer markings but I could be wrong as both of you have suggested import marks. Thanks for clearing it up.

          These markings can be found on any gun that went through the proofing house in Li├Ęge, it doesn't matter who made them. The manufacturers/sellers themselves have no access to the proofing stamps, they have to present the guns to the proofing house who then does the testing and inspection. They just tell the buyer that the gun has been inspected and has been found safe to use (at the time of inspection). These markings are mandatory for every life firing gun in Belgium and I belief even for modern blank firing guns.
