I recently picked up a nice Mossberg 42MB 22 trainer used by the British during WWII. Its one of 46K produced. Even with that many made they are tough to find. IMG_5223.jpg IMG_5224.jpg IMG_5225.jpg IMG_5226.jpg IMG_5227.jpg mossbergMX.png

If you can provide a clearer photo of the X swords mark just forward of the receiver, it will be possible to date when it went through Proof.

The l/hand letter is the critical one, but is indistinct. However, can rule out e as the letter used is upper case. So looks like we have the option of a badly applied C, 1952 or G, 1956.
The B on the r/hand side is the series mark and the number below is the inspectors mark, second in the pecking order. 1 being the senior inspector.

If I remember correctly, mine (below) corresponds to 1955, so 1956 would be a more likely bet
