I inadvertently posted this on the Mauser board. The unit tag on my M27 stock has been removed and an "X' has been carved through it. Anybody else seen anthing like this?

I have an M27 with the letter H carved where the disc was.

Is it possible that stock carvings relate to Civil Guard districts? Not necessarily the "X" above, but I have an M24 with an "H" and it was used in the Helsinki district. I think I have at least one more Mosin with a similar carving.

One thing that jumps to mind - the Finnish Jaeger (Light Infantry) shoulderboard insignia consists of a bicycle wheel with a pair of ski's across the wheel. Could almost look like the ownre had intended it to indicate this
