    Badger123....not Jager markings..."J.R." is for Infantry Regiment...the Imperial German Army often used a "J" as an "I" in "Regimentals" (the markings on clothing/equipment)...There are no "Jager" Regiments, as they were organised in Battalions only.....and numbered as such i.e. 4th Jager Battaliom would be marked as 4.J.B. as Regimentals.
    I cannot make out the full marking on the Maxim, can you supply the markings ?
    Prost ! Steve.

    These could also be a Finnish Unit marking as the Finnish Army use J R as infantry unit markings on items and the Finnish Army used alot of Russian Maxims
