There is no rear sight, but instead it has a cocking indicator, it has Belgian proof marks and a Mauser logo. The serial number "2222" is stamped haphazardly multiple times on this pistol. There is no rifling. The safety works and both the safe and fire positions are marked "SHUR". There are more markings in English characters but they do not form words.
