Is there a site where I can do a search on my Persian Mauser? Not a big deal, just curious about any history I can dig up based on the s/n.

Here's what I've got:

Under that in western numerals, obviously newer: C05619

To right of that:
A phrase in Arabic script I can't read.

Stamped into wood on left of butt:
"E.S.A."
with "4" under the "S"

Another stamping to rear of that:
"35"

On right of receiver, running vertically:
Crown
.
X
.
(arabic letter)
(arabic letter)
12 (in arabic numerals)

Stamped into wood on right side of butt:
s/n in arabic numerals

Another stamping to rear of that:
(4 or so more arabic letters)

On bolt handle:
s/n in arabic numerals

On top of receiver:
"Imperial" (misnomer) Persian crest (sunburst/lion w. sword/within crowned wreath)

On bottom of barrel near muzzle:
SAMCO MIA FL
