So, fake or not? Sorry this is the best the pictures get. Is Steyr 623 Waffenamt marked 3 times on right side.

Pretty simple actually. Only three contractors for Zf41 were Berlin Lubecker,Mauser Borsigwalde and Mauser Berlin.
Base is a modern fabrication with the original component mfg. by Steyr.

Yup, what Bruce said.

What Dave was after was the angle to see the weld line where the rail was added - which is obviously and deceptively hidden by the camera angles.

I'm guessing someone is selling this, and wants to rip you off.

Thank's everyone,

Your right, it is on ebay italy, these are the only pictures offered up.
I thought it was fake, but second opinions are always appreciated.

Honestly Jeff I did not notice the the Proofs , What I was wanting to Point out is there is a Very Easy way to tell Fake Base from Original .On the Originals there is 3 Small Steps that are machined in the Original Bases and Every Repro I have ever seen is missing these 3 Steps . Best Regards
