Article about: by stoggie I don't know what the K represents, but I do recall one for sale that also had that marking, and it was said to be from the Krakow armoury. For all I know it could be a inspector

    Chris those are wonderful photographs of Berthiers and Lebels, as well as the Maxim plus Polish field and anti aircraft artillery. I love seeing all those the beautiful Polish regimental standards too.

    I'm not sure if the Kr.21 is a Polish or Austrian marking. As well there are the letters R Z K stamp across the butt stock closer to the wrist.

    Again not sure if Kr.23 is a Polish or Austrian stamp. Possibly a workshop, depot or unit marking.

    **Update**

    I found a reference to the Kr.23 marking on the Manowar Hungarian Weapons and History site re Polish Austro Hungarian Mannlicher Rifles and Carbines which states that on the Polish M95 "The right side of the buttstock maybe arsenal depot marked like 'Zb' or 'Zbr-1' or 'Kr-23' (Kr = Krakow)."
