    Thanks for taking the time to get the codes, very helpful, - we need more people to contribute their codes, if you have an Amberg in the range and have the time, Wolfgang and I would appreciate getting your codes to see where this leads. (not to mention, for those with original barrels, I would like to get the barrel codes too!)

    A friend that is not on here has a 1915 Amberg rebarreld to k98k length. I'll see if I can get him to share.

    Yes, that was why yours was relatively more important, - it was in the range when they first began. Though, if your friend has the inclination, taking photographs of a Amberg/15 would still be welcome. Especially if it is original matching. Amberg's are pretty cookie cutter, very little variation (made is relative isolation, probably the best state arsenal to make rifles, they are very consistent, - they also survived in better condition than their Prussian & Saxon counterparts, not sure why, possibly due to Bavarian's conservative nature, farm boys and rural people being more respectful than their city counterparts, or maybe the Bavarian's had excess rifles to the degree some survived in the rear support services in larger numbers?)

    As this rifle has little to do with Simson, nothing in fact, I will move it to its own thread. If you have a preferred title for the thread let me know, I can change it.
