Bulgarian 8 x 50R Mannlicher


#1

I have a 1911 dated Bulgarian 8x50R Mannlicher round with the distinctive Lion marking at 12 o’clock and intertwined “CA” at 6 o’clock. Where was this made? Heare is the full headstamp: (Lion is shown as “#” and CA not intertwined)

–\ # /
19----11
–/CA\

I’m sure this is a simple answer, but I can’t find any information on it.

Could “CA” be Sofia Arsenal?
