Looking closely at the criss-cross diagonals on the receiver ring, I think that was part of the original engraving. The lines of the large X seem to be the base for the small somewhat triangular stippled areas. In other words, the criss-cross lines appear to have been there before those stippled areas were applied. Even the center punch dot at the center of the X may be part of the original engraving, because there are numerous other punch dots at the front and rear of the receiver ring. If that punch mark was supposed to be a center point for laying out a center line for the scope base screw holes, whoever did it didn't come close. But I believe the intent was decorative. After seeing some recent jobs in the main forum where screw holes in shotgun ribs were plugged and then engraved to match the rib matting, I agree with what Terry said about plugging and engraving.

Flygas, no offense taken. Everyone is entitled to his own opinion.

I've bought two engraving books, trying to figure out whose work it was.

Terry Buffum,

Thanks for the Larry Peters reference. I was thinking about trying to find somebody like that.

Still raining. I need a bright day, because I'm a lousy photographer.

I managed to get the old Sports Afield Gun Annual with the John Jobson article on Minar:

John Jobson 1

John Jobson 2

John Jobson 3

John Jobson 4

John Jobson 5

Please excuse the odd color. My old scanner won't work with the more recent MS OSs. I bought a new one from China, and I'm still very klutzy using it.

The weather is improving. Tell me specifically what you want photographed.

I had not used my camera in a few years, and was rusty today. I took only a couple of photos. One (sort of) came out. Here's the floorplate:

Thanks for the article and the picture of the floorplate, it looks much
nicer in your picture than it did on the auction website.

My camera, I think, is not working properly. The upperside shots were no good at all. I managed to repair enough of this one of the underside inletting to make it barely tolerable.

Compare middle photo on p. 86 of Petrov's first volume.

Here's a comparison of the .257 Minar illustrated by Mike Petrov with the 7x57 Mauser Minar:

Underside inletting compared

There will be some more photos.

Interesting, the only difference seems to be the trigger slot and the raised portion surrounding it, both of which were evidently altered to accomodate the after market trigger.
