I am most likely wrong, but this looks like a dead ringer for a Swede trigger guard assembly, and I can’t place the markings on it. Research has done me no good, so here we are! What do you gents make of this? The Swedish Mauser boys have already rejected it.

The 'Cross in Circle' is a Chilean inspection mark. Same with the 'Diamond' on the follower, and the 'cross over circle' on the trigger guard pin. The 'M' series was the last series of M1895 rifles, made by DWM, probably in 1902.

Interesting: the magazine plate has the no. '88' stamped on the inner side. Together with the '72' from outside, the serial # would be '8872' --> i knew this habit of stamping half of the serial# on the inner side only from Brazil rifles (M1894 and M1908). Thanks for posting these detailed pics!
