Earlier this year we picked up a 7.62 variant Israeli Mauser. Click HERE to see more photos. Our friend Reuven was kind enough to translate the Hebrew markings as they are literally written. —Editor
Ed — Since some markings might be abbreviations, I don’t expect you to know what they mean. But if you could translate what you see, that would be great for our research.
RE – It means produced by Taas . (IMI), at their plant in Ashkelon, under license from the Belgium licensor.
Ed – What are the 2 markings above the serial number on the receiver ring?
RE – Above the number, the letters are for a lot designation. Above that vaguely seen is just a symbol of the plant.
The two very visible letters, stand for “Nekhesh Tzion” . which was the original name of the company going back to 1948, literally “Zion arms”
