Romanian markings.  They do look much like the Soviet markings but the upper crest is different as is the arrow proof.

East German M/44. These are M44 carbines manufactured in Russia, so they will have Russian proofs and factory markings. The East German markingf is the 1 in the triangle. This number can also be a 2 or a 3.  These are also starting to show up more often in the US market, since the fall of the DDR. They still are not what one would call common.
