Not sure where to post this but because of the researchers of unit markings who post here I thought this might be a good place to start.
I have an MG34 bipod that has what appears to be a unit marking. The MG34 is a mixed set of parts including a core that is marked "243 1940" and barrel that appears dated "39" from a parts kit that came out of Century Arms about 20 years ago. The bipod is stamped, "Pz.B. 39".
Any ideas what this unit mark refers to? An MG34 seems late for a unit marking but the marking is very much in the style of markings appearing on lugers and earlier small arms.

Interesting. If they were the same, why bother to have them marked? Or are they the same?

The uniformity of the stamping suggests it is for the Pz.B.39 anti-tank rifle, as suggested. Thanks for that suggestion.
