    Default S/27.g

    Had this S/27.G for a while and finally got around to taking a set of pictures. It is well used. Handguard, bandspring & rod, do not match otherwise it is all correct.

    Awesome hard to find rifle, thanks for posting it. Itís interesting that these early ermas definitely had a different stock treatment than other makers, comparing this to one that was posted a year or so ago etc. Talk about an untouched stock! Love seeing the contrasting raw wood in cartouches.

    Great example overall but the wood is the highlight for sure. Awesome wood on it.
    WTB: Rough milled, blued, unnumbered floor plate as found on late MO rifles. Unnumbered MO bands, both KM and standard type, MO KM stocks including an unaccepted one, MO bands and stock 5897, upper band 0643

    Superb rifle, thank you for sharing Peter.

    Anyone have thoughts on the 4th eagle on the barrel, the no-number WaA that covers part of the barrel code? It almost appears like a firing proof.

    Fairly wild guess but I’m thinking it must be a secondary inspection of whatever that 2nd barrel proof covers process wise? Kind of like you see on the RR of some rifles, and seems to be especially evident at BLM early on, but they would still be a numbered proof so who knows? Might be way off base with that.

    Very plausible, though I get hung up on the 'accountability' aspect of this. WaA's carry a number for a reason; in Imperial times, the same would be true of a crown/fraktur letter, with the letter denoting the inspector or inspection team qualifying the part or assembly. That doesn't seem to be the case here.

    It would be interesting to see other examples of S/27G barrel codes to see if this is common there or an anomaly. Given the rarity of this make/date, that may be a tall order to fill.
