Does anyone know what nationality the markings on these tools might be? Does not look to be Russian but I am not sure. Thanks for any help, dan

Total wild-assed guess here   The lettering is Roman not Cyrillic so it is definitely not Russian. I had zero luck trying to find anything about the FWP marking.  The numbers give a small clue; that style of 1 and 4 is very common in Germany probably elsewhere in Europe but that doesn’t help a lot.   There is a limited number of languages in which the term for machinepistol would be abbreviated PM.  I don’t have anything like a complete list but some like France qualify linguistically but not politically.  However the Polish term for SMG is “pistolet maszynowy.”  No guarantees but if it were mine, I think I’d concentrate the search on Poland.



I found it Fabryka Wyrobów Precyzyjnych im. gen. Świerczewskiego (General Świerczewski Precision Machinery Factory).
