    I tried looking it up, but couldn't find it.

    It means "mark"

    A mark is an indicator of a variation, or a revision of the item.

    For instance the proper ammunition for the No4 Ladder sight is MKVII ball. That is, the seventh variation of the .303 ammo.

    Thanks everyone. Owen that is what I was looking for. I didn't express my question very well.
