    No, not my scope/case, but I know the owner. It now is on a Gl.V. marked Amberg 1918. I'll try to get more details about the rifle.

    For your files:
    Danzig 1917,
    # 4883 cc, Goerz semi turret , Gl.V. rear sight.
    and
    # 4606 hh, double claw sniper, Gl.V. rear sight.

    The rifles were on display at the 2013 SOS

    Sorry, I have NO! idea.
    Since both variations exist, I think at the change to the take down variation. But I do not have a clue when this occurred.
