    I too am glad to see more of Cyrus here, his absence was noticed!

    I am especially grateful for his presence when he brings a nice DWM with him! Away from trends, but 1909 is a scarce year for any...

    These pictures are inadequate for any analysis, the receiver is a Spandau, probably 1916, but I would have to run the RR against trends to guess year and range. The barrel FP shows its been...

    It is good you took better pictures, still difficult to tell a "story", though these at least can outline the rifle in general terms... the barrel is a re-barrel, when is a little difficult, but it...

    Thanks to Jon for the document! (and FG)

    Good!

    It is the factory barrel, though the importer cut it down... the rifle is very late 1917, oo-block, though not the end for 1917.. Danzig made a buttload of G98's in 1917. #4 is the...

    The Danzig has been upgraded, or seemingly so, and it is probable less than original to its Imperial state... even if all German modifications, it has been through a depot at least, possibly foreign,...

    Thanks! What is the suffix, the angle makes guessing a real guess... The RR is no help as Danzig is stable through most of 1915. The barrel is clearly a replacement, probably a WWI replaced barrel as...

    The barrel FP is definitely 1917 Danzig, the C/D on the RR almost always means re-barrel and I think by Danzig by comparisons made... it seems Danzig did a lot of reworking or re-barreling of damaged...

    You can't really fix this rifle, too short for 98k or G98 usually, though close to 98k. It might best be used as a 98k substitute, but really best to move on and buy a unaltered 98k or G98, depending...
