Well , Arlo Guthrie pondered the significance of the pickle in his motorcycle song.
Well, I don't want a pickle.................

What is the significance of the triangle marks stamped into the commie rifle barrels?
Russia used the fletched arrow in a triangle for the Izhevsk armory, & stamped some Mosins with a "25" inside a triangle, with a "1" inside the triangle for the East German issues, while Romania used a different arrow inside of its triangle stamped Mosins.
Then there is China that puts its codes inside a triangle on its rifles.
Why are the triangles used? What do they signify?

Associated with the number three. Pointing upwards, it symbolizes fire, male power and counterfeit view of God. (See pyramid) To Christians, it often represents the Trinity. Pointing down, it symbolizes water, female sexuality, goddess religions and homosexuality.

Buy that?

According to ancient beliefs, an upright equilateral triangle, with one point at the top and two at the base, is a male and solar symbol representing spirit, divinity, fire, life, prosperity and harmony. In contrast, the reversed triangle is female and lunar, representing mother earth, water, rain and grace.

In Christianity and Judaism, a triangle is often used as a symbol for God and the holy trinity, and in magic it was seen as representing the element fire (with a downward meaning water). When upright and downward triangles are put together, they form the Star of David and symbolize balance and knowledge.

Or that?

A triangle is a special case, version, and/or articulation, of a circle.
The triangle is three points, or three points of view, on a circle.
The triangle is a circle of lines, representing three, four, or five.
The triangle is 180 degrees or one-half of a circle (it tricks us into thinking it is a complete circle).
The triangle, as three points of view, articulates 'middle.'
Triangles and squares are three and four-view versions of the two-view circle.
A triangle is a way of seeing the circle in three phases, or from three points of view.
The triangle shows us on, off, and in-between, or day, night, and neither, or an observation, its opposite, and the point in-between.

Or this?

You can get anything you want at...

Shyquestor, that's too much on the menu!
Now, all the voices in my head are beginning to argue.

Does this mean some of my commie rifles are masculine & ungodly?, while my Tikka made rifles are feminine & homo?!?
Aarrrrghh!
Nooooo!
I don't want to know.
I need my Israeli Mauser!
Now, all those voices are singing "Alice's Restaurant"!
How do I make it stop!

Thanks, all!
I just slipped in a CD by Asleep At The Wheel that covers the old Commander Cody tune of "Beat Me Daddy Eight To The Bar"!
I am much better now!:)
