Default M44 Markings

So I just picked up my big 5 Russian m44 a couple of days ago. Its a 1944 Izzy and is in nice shape. Its been re-arsenaled (force matched magazine). My question is what does it mean if there are a bunch of "K"s with circles around them. Theres one on the stock by the "recoil pad", one above the Century import mark, and one on the receiver to the far left of the original serial number.

Yeah I was looking on there but couldn't find a marking that looked like what's on mine. "K" with no circle means something German (maybe a capture???)

Circled K on the receiver is a "point of aim" firing proof. Essentially it means it acceptably hit the target at the tested range. The others are likely just typical "inspectors" stamps. Many different letter combinations are found.
