I purchased this Maadi and am in the process of refinishing it. I think this board came to the conclusion that someone had built this up using chi parts on the maadi reciever. I noticed that the KNOX TN stamp has something else under it.


Anyone have any clue what it could be?



Looks like _______HS, NJ ?

Is this a steyr that was restamped by INTRAC?

I will TRY to get better pictures if I can but its hard to see with just the eye. The camera can see it easy for some reason.

If you step back from your monitor about 6 feet its easy to see the markings in the close up for some reason..

Most likely a Steyr import that was caught in customs after the 89 ban. .Then Intrac bought them up and give them the buthole treatment..

Yup!



I could be mistaken, but the Steyrs were a one time import during the early 80s... I am not sure if they were a constant thing.

My guess it that the factory in Egypt was sitting on a bunch of leftovers and decided to send them over....
