      RyanE reacted to mrfarb's post in the thread DUV 41 K98 with no serial on barrel with Like Like.

      As for the other stamp, I think it might be a smaller Kal inspection. Posen, Spandau, Krakau (and probably others) often stamped their...

      I would guess its the 2nd Kompagnie, Ersarz-Bataillon of Infanterie-Regiment Nr.138.

      RyanE replied to the thread Where all the Soviet PEM went.
      I am pretty sure that plate is field created also. There were 251s with factory installed 2cm guns (251/17 I think), but this isn't one...

      Personally, I can't wait to see it.

      Welcome to the forum. Your rifle was assembled by the SS at an unknown depot, possibly SS-Zeugamt Kurmark (in Peitz). Probably...

      My guess would be that it has been welded onto that field made bracket.

      Well, the BAL probably didn't suspended inspections in most places, but something very serious happened in the BAL in December 1944...

      Field mod of a Sdkfz 251 with a Flak38. The Germans used captured Soviet PEM for stuff like this all the time. Probably why so many...

      I agree. This is a bolt mismatch that wouldn't bother me a bit. Exposed duffel cut is a bit disappointing, but single runes (much less...

      Pi is Poldi-Hütte. Janeček finished the barrel. These Czech barrels are pretty scarce and only show up on spares.

      Another possibility is that these are very, very late production. Most of the officers of the BAL above the rank of Leutnant seem to...

      No, not at all. That is some interesting data on those swords, and I am not quite sure what to make of it. Perhaps since these are...

      We need to see more of the rifle, but this is/was a depot built rifle assembled from spare parts by the branch depot (HNZa) at Thorn in...

      RyanE replied to the thread My first K43 (ac44).
      No, look below the barrel code. Looks like an 'Ng' stamped there. This shows up on some ac44 rifles, and some believe this indicates...
