    here you go:

    the 3rd pic of the receiver looks like the original serial was 4423 and i'd swear the barrel was also 4423 also, which would beg the question as to why the restamp if they matched to begin with.

    You are assuming it was German done? Why? It is far more likely it was done during the soviet-communist "reworking". That they felt the slaughter of the original finish and tossing original parts to the wind was inadequate.

    There is no reason to assume this was done by the Germans, especially as this is not typical of period German reworking practice.

    sorry, but "far more likely" doesn't constitute fact.

    seems far less likely that the russians would have replaced the barrel because if that is the case, i'd tend to believe it to be the first russian captured replaced barrel i've ever seen, but then, maybe that explains the two "x's", which makes no sense to me.
