Just came across a bolt in the stash that I don't recognize ( probably because I never studied all the various proof marks very well :( ).

Anyway, it is a two piece extractor. On the side in a circle is what looks like a stylized eagle - I immediately thought BGS or Bundeswehr but it isn't quite like those proofs that I am familiar with. Immediately below this is a PV in a box.

If it looks like an eagle proof, ask Rick ;)

South African - Pretoria production marking is what you describe. PV in a cartouche/oval or box; I had several in the beater SA humper kits SARCO was selling years back.

Thanks, Dean. :beer:

Kinda suspected SA since the "eagle" wasn't like the Bundeswehr or BGS proofs I've seen, but really wasn't sure. Thanks again !!
