    Hope this helps.

    First is a set of bands from an S/27.G rifle - 7790. If these are from a G date, as I would think they are, it's a new high for S/27.G.

    Nest is my vet souvenir Erma 1939 rifle. All matching, but the original bolt and stock gone (GI Bubba). Everything else matches, down to the triggerguard screws.

    vulch if S27G bands they would have DROP eagle proofs not E280, these bands are from later production.

    Vaughn,

    How long did Erma keep using the narrow sling bar then? I thought the narrow early style sling bar ended in 1935.

    I've seen some curved sling bars on some maker's early '37 production rifles. By the 9000 range of "c" in '37 the S/237's have gone to straight bars, but the S/42 '37 7xx range in "c" still has curved sling bars. I've seen a bSw '37 with a curved sling bar as well. Hope this helps somewhat.
