    Or they're trying to artificially inflate a benchmark? Point to past 'sales' when trying to hook a rube?

    That's correct as I understand it. MO was doing the shortcuts, stamped parts and experimental materials for the most part and they came up with it. The first version was the same one piece design...

    Thinking organic shellac or some locally produced variant of the period? Hung over a fireplace for x number of decades? Looks really nice. The metal finish and blue on these is pretty special.

    All post-war Czech. The bottom metal was the primary pieces missing to complete rifles on hand due to the supply disruptions from the stamped metal suppliers in Germany.

    It's the 'barrel code'. 37 is 1937. K is for Krupp the steel supplier. 22 is simply the steel lot for quality control purposes. Then the e/4 x 3 is the acceptance of finishing operations. Yours...

    You're a lot more experienced with these but based on ALL the stock metal matching and e/4 and the acceptance pattern on right I'd have to say it's original. Maybe the only known example? IDK

    That's really the only thing different from mine. I don't collect them and only have my one example to go by. I'm sure they had a variety of marking configurations.

    I see no reason to not believe this is a 7.62 conversion. The stock cartouche is just like mine. The barrel is not German wartime. I don't know if there was a common 'standard' as to how Israeli...

    I figured that. Using cell phone pics, especially if you're bidding can be risky. Even on a 15" laptop screen is not clear without using the zoom feature.
