It seems hard to find a whole lot of information on Persian Mausers on the web, so I'd just like to propose a simple idea.

In another thread I have done translations for all markings on a rifle, and broken down the pictures to explain the translations. I transliterated the words to English, and also wrote the translation next to the word.

The marking on the stock of a Persian tells to which unit it was issued, so I would like make a simple photo file to help people distinguish where their rifles were issued.

Please post a picture of your stock marking so we can get this ball rolling. Thus far I have only seen rifles issued to infantry and artillery units, but it would be interesting for me to see others, and I'm sure exciting for the owners.

Below is a sample of my work... it looks like crap, I know. If anyone has skills in Photoshop and would like to clean up my work, for the benefit of others, please do. The original pictures are posted in the "Persian/Farsi Translations" thread.

Thanks guys.

brandon, I don't believe they understand that you asked for stock markings. Here's mine, which I believe you have seen before.

I believe one of those receivers you pictured is mine also. I appreciate the help you provided in the previous thread. Thanks.

Hey Ronny didn't I fix the handguard for that stock?

Candyman,

The marking on your stock is Pee-ah-day پیاده which is for an infantry unit, the word itself is used for "by foot". The marking on the right side of your receiver is intriguing, it has the swords, then ق ت 12
(for some reason I can't move the 12 to the right hand side of the numbers, damn formatting other languages) Anyway I tried to find out what this marking might be for, but so far haven't had any luck. Those two symbols by the 12 are just a "g" and a "t"

Ronny,

Thanks again for posting your picture, so the others know, it reads Toop-khaan-ay توپخانه "artillery" or literally "house of ball"

Interestingly, my carbine, or "short Brno" as they call it, doesn't have any stock stampings, just the engravings and Lion or Persia stamp on the receiver. Makes for a nice looking stock, but no clue as to its lineage.
