Hello all, its been awhile... Got a question about k98 bolt. I have a bolt that has a capital letter B next to the Firing stamp that is on the back of the bolt root. Anyone know what the B stands for? Thanks for any help.

If I'm not mistaken, most of those bolts with capital letters on them are from BSW guns. You have any waffenamt info from the bottom? Don't take my word as gospel, as I am not really into prewar guns even though I admire them. I admire Beer too.

Think your right farb. It looks like maybe a lone number 1 is there, but is very worn and hard to tell. Thanks
