    I know this is a trainer - but what is the meaning of 'KKW' designation?

    Thanks

    Klein Kaliber Wehrsportgewehr - small caliber sporting rifle, roughly translated into English.

    Beautiful rifle, tiger_jedi - I wish I could lay my hands on one of these!

    Love BSWs. Rare to see in such great condition and not S/A or property marked.

    Mine is 204xxx and is S/A marked on the left side of the stock.

    In Simpson's book the earliest regular production S/N in the dataset is 200168. Interestingly there is a BSW KKW Meisterschaftsbuchse that is S/N 198784. With the continuous serialization of rifles as they were produced yours has to be pretty close to one of the firsts.
