"...CA St A LB. VT..." Hi. All that is the import stamp of Century Arms when they were in St. Albans, VT. The 1696 is the model name/number. AKA M-69.
Gunparts(Numrich) lists a bunch of parts, but they're sold out of the 5 round mag it came with. Naturally.
It look like this?
Bob's Gun Shop lists a mag for a Romanian Training rifle. $30 each though. Listed under Magazines L through Z. It'd be worth a phone call.
