    Default Page 162 - image description error, bottom right photo

    Bottom right image caption should refer to the "original front band has been modified".

    Default Page 545 RG34 Identification

    The 5th RG34 from the top is identified as 'Gustav Appel RG34 produced in 1938' appears to be 1935 dated.

    Default Page 57, bottom left photo, states wrong hand

    Page 57, picture of Wehrmacht Army guard armed with a Kar98a on left side of page states "The rifle is also fitted with what appears to be a strap hold down, visable just above right hand." It's above his left hand, the right hand isn't even visable.

    Default Cutaways

    V.1 p.421: " "From observed examples, it seems the only factory manufactured cutaway 98k rifles with a serialized production came from Erma Werke."
    Perhaps true in the period covered by vol. 1 (through 1938) but among my cutaways are Mauser Oberndorf cutaway 1939 SN 30 and BLM (!) cutaway 1941 SN 10(?); components on the latter WaA214, bolt SN 10, rear sight components SN 6.

    "BLM model 98 roll marks were applied from the beginning at BLM." I observed a 3 digit serial recently with no model 98 on the side, apparently there maybe one other known without it too, another 3 digit.

    Bruce discovered a pretty big error in BSW production chart in Vol.1 today. Our production chart says a high serial is 9983 d. Actual high number is 2706 b. The error is one of reporting - a bsw38 a block with an odd tail on the "a" looks like a d sometimes, so it was probably a bad image or just human error.

    This puts bsw 1938 production at about the same as 1937, 23,000 instead of 49,000.

    It's likely that this error was noticed in other parts of the chapter as the trends table ends at the a block, which is a clue that the two don't jive, but missed in the final editing process. Humans make mistakes! It makes better sense anyway that the production was consistent there.
