I see K. ART which is for use by the Norwegian Military, in this case K. ART for the coastal artillery. Other Norwegian markings would be:

FLY: Air Force
KNM: Royal Norwegian Navy
HV: Home Guard
NBS: Norwegian Government Railway
K.ART: Coast Artillery
POLITI: Police

Have seen those grind marks on the receiver bevel before. A quick search speculates they were done by the Israelis to remove their marks before export. Are there any numbers on the stock near the sling well?

Quite the history.
