    Yeah all valid points, especially the price to a better, perhaps all matching rifle. There are several incongruities we can already see here but better, more complete photos would be required.

    The funniest thing about that whole conversation is IF you were pegged to be an 'inflltrator' choosing something high profile like SS or TK would probably be the WORST choice you could make. How...

    No doubt. NOT being an ass but these pictures are nearly worthless for a serious evaluation. You honestly need clear, lit photos of the stamps and numbers. Normally IMHO bad, irrelevent or out of...

    'Folke Myrvang', 'The Gestapo Bois' w/ 'The Authenticators' (sounds like a punk rock Oom-Pah twin bill), the field armorer and his magical wagon. It was great stuff.

    Yeah good call. You get used to seeing them all lined up on early rifles. Are we like 90% on that? Thoughts?

    Geezus looking at the grind set in that first under the woodline set. Was the guy getting bombed while he was trying to grind that? Thanks for the really nice photos to look at.

    So I just saw this and the very first photo I chose to open (#5?) I saw this and couldn't resist. So sometimes things that seems 'wrong' are what really was happening at Steyr. Upside down? We got...

    Just as your avatar are a source of amusement you must admit some of those drive-by were epic. I almost wish someone would try a new 'never before seen' job

    I like the theory you proposed and the evidence. Totally makes sense to me that you wouldn't want to spend the time and finishing efforts on a barrel blank that wasn't up to snuff. I wonder if this...

    Good call. I believe it should probably be a mid to later 1938 stock based on the Weimar and Nazi eagles and the 280 and 77 mix. Someone could probably date it even closer?

    Close but not really correct. 'GECO' supplied the barrel to the system as a spare. The e/26 acceptance is because the factory in Berlin was within that teams area of responsiblity. As mentioned...

    No issues. In the first post that's 2 different rifles. First one is the Gunbonker akshun item a 1939 and the 2nd one is the reference piece you see dated 1940.

    "Made in the Germany"... Apparently that's all the information you need right there. And all this for the low, low starting price of $2853!! :facepalm:

    RC mixmaster in pretty tough conditon as mentioned. Not sure what a 'fair' price might be? $400? $500? Is the bore even still good? I don't know but for certain that number is no where near 1200.

    No I read that he mentions he also got a '41 RC in that thread and then Paul was talking about the RC fanclub on Gunboards.
