Hi Sylektis,

All I can contribute is this photoshoped version of your image of the marks, hoping it will help attract more competent members.

Best,
Michael

Hi again.

I found in my photo archive the same marks on another pistol.
Can anybody help now?
Resemble Belgian proof marks but I can't identify them exactly.
Thank you.

Hy Sylektis,
They have a similar exterior oval shape but they are not Belgium (Liege) at all.
I guess all those efects in your pistol ar only decorative, to resemble real marks; a practice often seen in Turkish guns, for one .
