    Default G29 period pictures?

    Anyone got some shots of the G29 in use with the Luftwaffe?

    I have looked high and low, and NOTHING that I could find.

    Im not too sure. I might have found it on this website: http://www.histomil.com/viewtopic.ph...04e7900cb17533

    You can spend days looking at all those pics in that link. Lots of very interesting and never before seen ones. I found those pictures of the 98/40s in that thread also.

    I like to flip through period pics and save all the interesting ones that show rifles, gear, etc.

    Great picture Amberg! MANY thanks!

    Note the rifle on the right has a standard K98 sling - note the adjuster. One wonders if it has the frosch or not - though, likely the frosch omitted and using a stud keeper of some description, seeing it will be attached to the standard detachable swivel.

    Oddly, at firsat, I thought the guy on the right had an odd type bayonet - the crossguard "belnds" into the uniform belt buckle so well, it looks like a quilloned bayonet - maybe like one of the Belgian bayonets Then I looked again.

    Ah, forgot those of Mike's.

    I have 2 South American contract "Gew98" slings in the mail, so may use one of those, but I think I do have a spare K98 sling SOMEWHERE in my piles (I sold 6 slings, foolishly)

    That is all predicated on finding the unique Steyr mid band swivel... I know where one is exactly, just finding the right trade goods is the HARD part! (money waving is USELESS)
