    I've got one for you. Let's more of that rifle. All I can see is matching numbers and the barrel is a 1938 Ruhrstahl supplied blank. Wonder if Geco did the finishing? Anyway I'd be interested in seeing more photos. Nothing on the K in the bolt handle relief.

    e/280 waffenamt, probably ERMA, probably 1938 by the pattern. Generally waffenamts tell you more than blank providers (ordnance code for the finisher is always nice too, this one should have one, probably EE, one of the last ERMA would have made...)

    As for the Y, who can say, this is not a mfg mark, the rifle clearly has been through a lot and we do not even know what is original to the rifle. Posting three pictures will lead to no answers, and in this case there probably isn't one as it is entirely unrelated to the thread subject marking.

    Thought I would double check on the possibility of Geco, pretty unlikely, but possible, they were in Berlin and MB used e/280 and in one case an e/280 is known, for a 1937 barrel. Thing is Geco started making barrels when e/280 was going out of Berlin, most Geco's are 39-40 dated barrels and almost all are e/26 (a few e/211). Further the pattern, the blank provider at the end of the code is not right for Geco in 1938. They typically end with a lot number at the end, though in 1940 they do follow this pattern with the blank provider at the tail.

    Good guess, but pretty sure this is ERMA with the 38 Ru e/280 showing.

    There is something very strange going on with your rifle, almost all the parts are 1936 Oberndorf, nothing to do with the barreled receiver?? Either someone found the exact 4 serial numbers on a different rifle (an Oberndorf) and put it together or the barreled receiver is ground and renumbered, have a closer picture of the serial? I didn’t see any depot evidence on a quick glance either.


    ***I take it back looking at the wrist this might be a depot rifle.
