That's an FN-49 made for Egypt, so it should be in 8mm Mauser; have you stripped it down completely, and checked the gas system? They fired a lot of corrosive ammo through those, and it's something you have to watch for.

Thanks SDC. Haven't stripped it down yet. It belongs to a friend but I will suggest just that

Hi. That's not a proof mark. It's a country's stamp. Egypt, like SDC says.
This'll be useful and a free download.
