    Erfurter Maschinenfabrik. Really nice quality and they made all the parts. You will only occasionally find a part not made by them.

    Wow! Don Mitchell Ostwerke?

    Is it just me or does it look like the receiver s/n is a mix of fonts and different sizes? 198256

    Lol, yes I agree it's a knife. Before I even saw slash respond I agreed so I guess maybe my instincts are getting better. You need a well tuned bullshit detector in this hobby.

    That's not really the case. Looking through the picture reference and occasionally for sale here in the trader you can find fantastic original no excuse examples. That's often not the case out in...

    Well some of the sellers are deliberately misrepresenting the rifles just as Dandy Don does. Some of the buyers couldn't be bothered to do any research and I'm sure some love the brand new look and...

    It is very possible to snip the photos so the seller ID or other info that would immediately reveal the location is removed. That's really the best solution if you're trying to keep the traffic...

    No stupid questions here. Well almost no stupid questions. Yours is a g block. 1-9999 with no letter, then repeat with a suffix, then b and so on. Later they produced so many at some facilities...

    Looking at the cracks you're talking about I feel like they're superficial and should not pose any problems shooting. Cracks in these areas, especially deep and wide and or accompanied by recoil lug...

    I hate being a balloon popper but I have to agree with BiO. Once you see a truly unmolested stock you know. The edges are so sharp you could almost get cut on them. See the edge I circled in green...

    Agreed. Unfortunately he's still getting parts from somewhere.

    I have literally NO doubt. He's been caught many times already. It's what he does.

    Good points all around Mike. I was thinking the same thing about it being a springboard AND a pretty valuable learning experience.

    As to the second part I really have to agree. I'm seeing nicer...

    Funny but it really is true. If someone 'made' it matching and added some ridiculous non-existent cartouches it'd be pushing the 150 end.

    Congrats on a pretty tough to find rifle. Only 1 other '39 in the reference section. I wish the photos were more clear but my photographic skills aren't great either.

    Nice Luft rifle despite someone's very rough treatment of her earlier. The e/37 parts are very normal IMHO. Both mine are but like yours serial and block matched to the gun. One of my band springs...
