Century just missed the import mark. Happens I have a capture P38 that was missed(out of the 40 I bought)
I still have the same question I asked on the "other forum". Anybody know what country Century bought the rifles from?
All I have seen spent time in India (India captured 1,000's in the 73 war). If from Paki. There should be another 900,000 left for sale.
I have a slightly newer POF No4Mk2 (1960-dated, C39xxx serial block) that also looks to have spent time in India (Ishapur screw, grenade-launcher sight modifications to the forearm and rear barrel band).
It has a stamp on the side of the stock that I've wondered about: a circle, about 15mm across, containing "506" over a broad arrow over "9-72". This could narrow down the time of capture somewhat, if it can be identified as Pakistani or Indian.
Not too many more out there; POF only made 60,000 or so No4Mk2s I believe, before the G3 went into production.
