    I agree with you in that Otto Bock was famous for making rifles, not for making scopes. They surely were supplied scopes which later had their name on it. I however can‘t outrule that they once made...

    9130 should be the rifle serial it was originally issued with, whereas 33222 (hope I've read it correctly?) would resemble the serial of the scope on this mount. Knowing the scope is indeed this...

    .. so then a wild guess: at the beginning they hand-picked well-shooting rifles and equipped them with the Glasvisier which then got accepted by the GPK and therefore received the K marking on them....

    The pictured rubber shim is not the one which was originally with it. It was made to fit and a simple circle shaped cut and therefore cylindrical. I can't tell you if the originals have had the cuts...

    Well, it was so unique that I thought I have to share it ... but to the questions: no, I have not shot with it. Not yet, since I just got it, and not yet since it is missing one rubber shim, as well...

    MP40 silencer

    Came ahold of this one and thought I should share it since there is nearly no literature nor pictures available on a silencer for the Maschinenpistole 40. Note this model is with rubber shims that...

    Not sure if I understood all correct. You are only interested in rifles with matching number mounts, or what exactly would you need for doing research?

    I would vote towards Sauer HT bases since you mention there is no 135 acceptance on rear scope base. They look original to me too. Only bad thing is someone touched the rear scope base with a file at...

    I also had not seen this mount in combination with a Gewehr 98 with tangent rear sight. Interesting rifle - wish I had seen it back then! Paul if you had saved it, for how much did this rifle sell...

    You could help by showing pictures of your rifle in your thread where you more than two years ago promised to upload pictures, what so far still did not happen. If you can't remember, it was this...

    Thank you for the link. I only thought of the pics in Roberts book, and these are rather small and only black and white. The 7 on your SSDC sniper rifle has a serif on top. The 7 on my scope does...

    Mike, there is a difference in sharing pictures of new acquisitions and pointing out details, compared to tell people what in particular is wrong with this and that. While sharing information,...

    The SSZZA stamps are ACCEPTANCE stamps. They are - for me - NOT repair/depot stamps. This is what you have to consider when comparing it with other stamps, such as the Deaths Head arsenal stamps....

    Mike, as I had written via E-Mail I can't follow all of your assumptions. In a short reply here therefore I'll mention the main points here too.

    You did not do wrong at your price, doesn't mind if original or reproduction. You could easily sell it as reproduction for more than what you paid, so no worries.

    Stories such as these are always...

    Well Dave if there are nearly no repsonses I do take it as a lack of interest. Why would so many contribute on making faux rifles or ZF41 discussions for the 150th time, whereas a set like this gets...
