As we were getting this kit ready to build, we noticed a small proof mark on the rear receiver stub. It appears to be partially marked. After doing some research, it looks it could be the Hungarian coat of arms. Since the stamping is so small, it's probably a simplified version of the coat of arms. If anyone has a clearer image to share of a factory stamp, that would be appreciated. Also included some pictures of the build in progress.

The mentioned mark is the military acceptance mark used till 1990.

B - Military acceptance marking
  • 2.5 mm size K I. or K II. letter and below one/two 1.5 mm size number in a 5 mm diameter circle - Military Acceptance Mark (1951-1963), or
  • 5 mm diameter, coat of arms of the Hungarian People’s Republic, and below one/two 2 mm size number stamp - Military Acceptance Mark (1963-1990).

It was stamped to the receiver's right side at back, and barrel, receiver front trunnion right. In a rare case if it was stamped to the barrel front trunnion or the receiver left side as well, means the weapon was made by the experimental workshop. Normally it was stamped to the gun's right side only.
