    Default 1916 Amberg re-barrel

    I have a 1916 AmberG that was rebarreld in 1935? With a Simson barrel. It's an interarms import so sadly the barrel was cut down. If you would like photos of the barrel markings you can email me at 31bravo931@gmail.com
    I can not upload photos from my phone

    The barrel is not Simson, rather its JPS, but very early, 1935'ish, though installed much later. Did D93 provide a right receiver acceptance picture?

    Would be helpful if he does, I need the RR in anycase, however we also have a study on Amberg in the Imperial section and this rifle falls in at the very beginning of that study (when the codes first began). It would be helpful if he can get these desired codes off the receiver:

    As the link to the research thread shows, Amberg started in the t-block to add special codes that seem to relate to lots (perhaps steel lot, they are generally progressive in how they advance). These lots are on the left receiver below the serial (under the stock), separated by the edge milled into the receiver. Easy to find.

    The other is under the receiver, probably a "G", though K & S is seen earlier. As we do not know what this represents, - possibly steel related (K=Krupp, S=Steirische Gußstahlwerke, who knows...), but if so, I would think B=Böhler or B=Bismarckhütte would be present, and so far it isn't.

    Anyway, the first step to answers is always the trends of known examples.

    It's 7L6 then about a quarter inch away is 0. Underside is a G.
