    Default Matching 27 1938, nice

    Here's one I've never shown. Matching Erma from 1938, luftwaffe marked to boot. Great condition overall, matching down to the little bits (except the rod). The main detractor is some buffoonery to the rear band and the recoil lug in the form of ignorant disassembly. The bayonet lug pin is missing, but the front band fits very tightly and keeps it in place.

    I like it, not too mention Erma is my favorite maker anyway. Thanks for sharing!

    Nice rifle. I am always amazed to see how much care went into the pre-war rifle production. Even though they were military contract rifles they look much nicer than today's commercial rifles!! Each one a work of art from a time when making firearms was an art form in and of itself!!

    Great Luft rifle. That's as in-house and matching as you can get I guess? Looks like they made every piece!

    Very nice Nathan, thanks for sharing it. Pic stickied for reference.

    To give an idea as to the scarcity of original matching Erma K98ks, check out the pic sticky for 27 / ax:

    I like your Erma, thanks for sharing! Close to your rifle is Sn. 81h, it's also Luftwaffe and listed in a table in the Volume I book. Which barrel code has your rifle?
