    Hi Jory, thank you very much for the detailed pics, that's obviously a textbook rifle (transition from e/211 to e/280) ! :thumbsup:

    Looking at p.399, there's a 1938 with a e/63 locking screw, so...

    Thanks Hambone ! Glad to hear that. I had some fun identifying places I know (especially Minsk!) and imagining these guys were there too.

    Hi Absolut,

    This oddity caught my eye, I checked data sheets in Vol II and it looks like Feima and Steyr blued firing pins. MO also did that on some byf 44 apparently (p.283 of II.a).
