Tonight I was taking apart my second Century Arms project, a 1918 Ishapore Mk III* converted to a .410 musket in 1931. In stripping it I noticed a "Cht" mark on the right side of the butt stock. Has anyone seen this before? It's new to me.

Nothing has been sorted on this. On Gunboards a few think it's abbreviation for some police district, which would make sense. The only mention I have found of any "Cht" abbreviation associated with India is for the Chittagong Hill Tracts which were ceded to Pakistan when India became independent. I would think that would be in all capital letters, though, instead of capital C and lowercase h and t. Seems to be one of those Enfield mysteries.
