    Yeah I'd have to agree. A real forum would probably be appropriate. I'd seen the serial grind before in the last few years (1 Gunbonker seller did it more than once and got called) but the one thing I still can't wrap my head around is where the e/623 RSB came from and why they decided to replace that too?

    Yes I'm glad I circled back to see how this continued to unfold. Certainly the books unlock rare and odd items that would take a lifetime to see. Two things. Would really good pics get this stickie worthy? (It IS really interesting) Second, thoughts on why the e/623 RSB? Still can't wrap my head around that one. Damaged and this was a salvage piece?

    They obviously broke rifles down for parts and used them at depots, they must have been very damaged to end up in the parts bin though considering the amount of work this one was given. It also has a Radom front sight base too. Actually not even just depots used parts like this, you sometimes see previously numbered parts (often imperial) used in production, so they definitely broke rifles down. I can recall seeing this at Brünn mostly but I believe other manufacturers as well. It is a very interesting rifle, cool to see all the details that add up to authenticating it, it indeed has all the depot numbering on the other components.
