    You are right, all "945 1940" and "dot 1941" have the "7,88" at the receiver ring, also the early "dot 1942" rifles. In the "a" block in 1942 the "7,88" got replaced by the final acceptance e/63.

    It's great to see another Amberg, thank you for all the photos.

    Receiver and bolt was made in July 1917, I would say receiver is from the 8th batch and bolt from the 7th batch.

    Yes, I agree with the theory and I think the majority got assembled in late 1941. Unfortunately we don't have documents which show in which Luftzeugamt the rifles got assembled. Maybe in L.Z.A....

    You are right, the stock completion date is October 8, 1940 and in my opinion your K98k got assembled also in the 41st calendar week, short time after stock completion. Your pictures are very small,...

    Nick, I know R.F.V. rifles with property number up to late 1939 K98ks. You are right, later they dropped the property numbers, similar like at the Kriegsmarine.

    I can imagine it was a great surprise when you got the rifle. Beside your vz. 24 I only know one other vz. 24 with R.F.V. marking, it has the serial number 8786 A3.

    R.F.V. - Reichsfinanzverwaltung rifles

    I see it often that some collectors misinterpret where K98k rifles with R.F.V. marking at the buttplate were mainly used. These rifles get called "bank guard" rifles for interbank transfers etc.

    Thank you very much for the data.

    The "Ha" is the abbreviation for the laminate supplier and 2 (day) 51 (week) 42 (year) means December 15, 1942. I was off by three days with my estimation.

    It is unlikely that these R.F.V. marked weapons were used as "bank guard" rifles, they rather served in the...

    I have to correct my previous comment.

    The stamped "K" stands for "Kaurit" and the "P" for "Phenolformaldehyd". During my research I could find out the Kaseinleim (casein-glue) wasn't used, they...

    Droulz, is it possible you check behind the buttplate for the stock completion date code? I guess there is the laminate supplier "Br" and maybe a completion date in late 1940.

    I will explain it in simplified form. They start making a new rifle in 1940 and start with serial number 1 (no suffix letter). When they reach serial number 9999 they start...

    That's great, thank you very much for your support!

    Is the letter "P" or "K" visible at the stock? You can find it behind the grip ball.
