An invaluable reference work illustrating and interpreting the symbols, inscriptions, coats of arms, codes, and other markings found on Mauser military rifles from around the world. Chapters include illustrations of the markings; translations of foreign alphabets, words and numbers; a discussion of calendar systems used to date Mauser rifles; and much more information describing and explaining historical and cultural features of these fascinating firearms. For anyone who has ever wondered what the Persian, Turkish, Chinese, or other exotic writing on Mauser rifles really says, why there's a swastika on some Chinese Mausers, or what "ASFA" means, this book is a veritable treasure chest of answers to those and many other formerly baffling questions.
