I ran across this strange marking on a Mauser 1914 Post WWI (4th Variant?). Does anyone have a clue of what this sideways "7" means. There are no other unusual external markings or unusual proofs on the pistol except the one seen normally. Thank you friends! PX.jpg

It just means that sometime, during it's life, someone stamped a "7" on the back of the frame. When I first read the title of this thread I thought it was about a factory inspectors mark, which upon a close examination of any Mauser pistol, one can find small markings of unknown meaning. Yours is not an inspectors mark. As it is the only example I have seen marked like this it is my opinion that it will remain a mystery.

Regards,

Thank you Mr. Mason. Your input is very much appreciated. I'm fairly new to collecting and learning so much. These are fascinating pistols. Thanks again.
