PROOF MARKS.

Proofing the barrel of a gun began as a means to insure its safety and integrity.  Proof Houses were established by law in almost every country and it was required that weapons sold within the respective country, and for exports be able to withstand a proscribed load without damage. When this test was successful the weapon was stamped with a seal to acknowledge the test - which is called as Proof Marks.  These marks then tell us the country of origin of the weapon. Proof Marks, or Proofs as they are sometimes referred to, changed over time and therefore assist in dating arms. Below are the sample of Proof Marks which different countries use:-

1. Austrian, Czechoslovakian, and Hungarian proof marks.
