I recently joined this forum and after reading a number of posts concerning grips I realized I've never seen any like the ones from a rusty parts gun I bought through the Shotgun News 40 years ago. So here they are for your viewing pleasure.

Interesting that the Mauser factory name has been removed from the frame.

I would think G for Gendarmerie. But just a thought.

I cannot see a 9 in those shapes? Unless they are really, really worn away.

The area where Oberndorf is stamped looks different too doesn't it? It's stamped on a narrow bar, Waffenfabrik is faintly stamped above.

The grips have "29" stamped in the back so it could mean gun #9.
The grips have the horizontal lines, very faint.
Someone went to the trouble of making a branding iron so I think it would've been applied to more than one gun.

It was a complete gun with very loose grips when I got it. I took it apart to see what I had and was so disappointed that I wrapped it in a rag and tucked it away. Somehow the rest became separated from the frame and I can't figure out for the life of me where I squirreled it away. So I've no idea what it's chambered for.
