    I would expect the DH on the keel on a zza4. Such a cool rifle, a mix of so many neat parts, earlier barrel, contract TG, the receiver, and a Walther stock to top it off, nicely done, weíre all...

    Iíd say that looks like a perfect example then, I probably wouldnít even sweat the bands, they ďlookĒ good overall on it anyway. Iím curious to hear thoughts on that receiver.
  10. How late did Walther produce the sportmodell?

    I picked up a Walther this week that has me curious about this question. The majority I see are prewar guns, and this appears to be a late eagle/N gun, but how late? Looking through Simpsons book...

    Matt, I think both bands are not original to it, I would presume this would have a Dsm style rear band. The front band also looks incorrect, people often make these out of existing barrel bands, by...

    I think itís real personally, and you have two different iterations of it having been messed with. I think someone started to make it sportier, rasped the stock, ground and filed the ugly front...
