Thanks to an old post by the famous Dave Roberts :hail: I pretty definately have a LOW turret (absolutely outstanding photos Dave). On my front base, my rifles "grove" is all the way at the bottom... but my rifle has the eagle 135 behind the serial number. I thought that was on high turrets only! Also I am missing the trigger guard lock screws. Would they have the half moon cutouts?? I have access to both types. Thanks guys. gebirgs

The Early LT`s did not have the 135 Proof but the Later LT`s did have 135 proof . As for the Locking Screws. I can never keep that straight in my head again Mike , Bruce or Craig aka Hambone can tell you or others .
Again Great LT . Best Regards .

Hello all
two silly questions:

1) low turret : production in 1943 not in 1944. letter suffix d. means first half of 1943. do you know any low turret in letter d,e and f. I know one LT in letter g.

2) About the security: it is not cut as it should be for a sniper bolt . why ?

thanks for your answers .

best regards

In Your Question #2 About the Security .
Do You mean the Safety

If so the answer is Yes the safety on this is Correct . on the Early LT Snipers the Standard Safety`s were used . Best Regards

hi Dave
yes I mean safety. but is it a late or an early LT ? What is your opinion regarding the block d (very very very very early) . If it is an early LT why is there a waa135 ? do you know any LT in letter d, e, f ????

best regards

Hi Xavier,
This would be a mid war L/T. The real early did not have Waffenamts on base or receiver. The early types are put together by contractors and are 1939. While the earliest reported L/T produced by Mauser, according to Law's Sniper Variations is 1940. This rifle in question is 1943.
