    What is the full barrel code, I see 43D1** curious if there are additional numeric characters. It is early for a 43 blank to show up (on a c-block), wondering if its lot is "1" or in the teens.

    Have you a right receiver picture?

    I agree it looks like a couple visits, some of the work is early than others, the stock looks like it might be original (Danzig/17) right acceptance and features...

    I too am glad Jordan managed to acquire it, I was hoping someone here would at least, - super rare rifle in this condition (rare in any condition), of the wartime production only Simson/15 and...

    Craig, Standard-Modell "siderail", its redundant and repetitive, but I pretty much always identify SR changes regardless of variation.

    Frank, stocks are "seemingly" pretty devoid of markings, as...

    A very nice rifle, unusual too, though this rifle falls in the range where strange hybrids begin. There are a number of hybrid SM/98k or military acceptance (e/655 finals) SM in this range and...

    I should also make note regarding dating of B-prefix rifles, the barrels are often dateable, - barrels before 1935 are not dated, but starting in 1936 they are, B47xxx is when the first 1936 barrel...

    I am not sure what is meant by "lacrosse"? The "77" on the rearsight component, the slide or range selector, I am sure the Germans have some 30 letter word for it, looks like a unintentional double...

    Too nice and matching to be Albanian. Simson did used left over and salvaged components from WWI, though typically not this late. This is an e-block by the RR and acceptance, pictures aren't the best...

    Probably some truth in that, - the Lord gave us the recipe for beer to keep us from killing one another... I am sure beer has prevented more than one war over the course of history.

    A rifle like this is rare in the US, pretty original, more than most, especially this early. The dated (1925) are more common that most of the earliest blocks (a-c), the 1924's and 1926's are all...
