#5

lo!
we can see at once you’re not living in France!

#6

What does it say then?


#7

It says “Turkish Monopole” or if you prefer “FTCI”

And if FTCI, they have not used Arabic or Chinese letters!
So I guess one does not need to live in France to not read Arabic!

  1. I never told you the exact traduction was FTCI

  2. I told you the meaning was FTCI (or Turkish Monopoly if you prefer)

  3. They are not the regular letters used nowadays , they are calligraphy letters.

  4. And on this small hstp they didn’t put all the points which are on the drawing of the mark.

Put a point on the right of the T and you will recognize “jim”
The vertical straight is “alif”
Put a point above the vertical line at the bottom and you will recognize “fa”
Put a point above the vertical line at the top and you will recognize a “ta”

Or something like that

I have some new info:
The traduction is FTCI
And this hstp is also found on a lot of other revolver and pistol ctges (7.65 brg, 32 S&W, 320 Cf, 25ACP, 8 mm Mle92, 7.65 Mannlicher, 9 Bayard, 38 S&W, 380 CF, 9 Steyr, 7.65 Para)

Here is an example on a 9 Bayard ctge

It is a metal detecting find.
