    Default 10" K98k Cleaning Rod (Marked with Serial # 82, S/42, WaA63, "K")

    This 10" cleaning rod came in a box with one of my MO rifles, but the "82" doesn't match the serial number ...

    Regards,
    Doug

    Very nice, but do you have any rods with "i" or even better "i" and a waffenamt? Their rear sight parts are rather common but rods are tough!

    I am doing a quickie article on Elite-Diamantwerke and I would like to pilfer a picture of a really good example for my article? I have several period documents I will use to illustrate the company aspect but I also would like a good picture of some of their parts. Preferably with the "i" and waffenamt. (and only BiO takes pictures as well as you do!)

    Anyway, I am actually doing to a series on the companies in the "Sachsengruppe" that "primarily" supplied Gustloff Weimar (set up for this purpose but they eventually supplied most firms at one time or another)

    I hope B&M other works will really have a focus on these firms, as it is one of the least discussed topics in 98k study.

    Anyone who has any Elite-Diamantwerke (or "Sachsengruppe" parts- from the big makers especially) parts that show "i" and the waffenamt I would be interested in using good pictures for my article. (credit given of course)

    Awesome! You can post them here or email through my websites? I guess no harm in putting it here, as I could not possibly get more emails from "Russian brides", porno sites or people concerned about my sex life than I do already...

    The website email is graf@gewehr98.com

    Send info on how to credit you also? Some are rather secretive so we try to do as the contributor asks.

    Yes, the books will expand on these firms, also the Simson Suhl story and "conversion" to BSW. Here's a pic I have of an i proof rod.

    Thanks for the help on the pics! Very helpful.

    I knew you'd cover them, kind of have to! But I hope within the time frame of the book we can get a lot more data to cover all the firms very thoroughly! Some I have a lot of data on, others almost nothing..
