BBOTW indicates specifically that the DRP marked Mauser Banners were rifles actually intended for SA and SS use.
Is this true? I know Law had some serious errors in his book, but he does reference the actual letter. I was quite surprised when I read it.
I have a nice rifle in my sights (1933, all matching but cleaning rod, beautiful bore and lightly sanded stock) and will buy regardless as the price is a good deal.
