the slide and the barrel on mine have been electro-penciled which is quite common. I have a Steyr m1895 Carbine made for Bulgaria and the bolt on it is the same way. Good question on the star. May have been reworked by the Russians?? and on the slide there is no crown,may have been sanded off?looks like it to me,thanks
