So my grandfather had two Mausers in his safe tucked in the back. When he passed, my dad took one and I took the other. Mine is a Russian capture K98, but my dad's is an M48 with markings completely different than mine.

I posted photos of the markings. What can you guys tell me about it? Any history at all is great.

The number is the last picture is either 29X11943 or 29XI1943
