    If it were a fully original Loewe bolt I could see the strong price, though still pretty obsessive... this appears to be a Spandau bolt, couldn't match the C/B exactly, but by suffix style and FP...

    So Frank is holding out on us!

    The earliest so far recorded, no issue date, but can you do a picture or tell us whether the bolts lower flat is Crown/B like Chris's? So far his is the only one...

    Chris, I took some time and looked into my correspondence with CB and Jon Speed at the time, some of it from Jon Speed on the magazine may serve us well. It turns out that CB's 5742 E with the...

    Tom is right, - bolt, stock and bands are bad, have been bad since 2010 at least (forums and several auctions, passed through LR's also); bolt is FN and that didn't happen at JPS in 1941 (my trends...

    If you have to fall in a rabbit hole, it is as good as any, with a lot of potential towards being original in researching the subject. CB was fascinated by it as well and the only real disadvantage...

    From the limited numbers known, 9 with pictures, 10 with this one, most are interwar builds like this one, but almost all carry the property mark (1920), which suggests this is before 1931 in most...

    I agree its a screamer, damn near new in some respects!

    Good estimate so far, 5000/d block is confirmed high, though only one in this last block (9 in the c-block); true too that few are this...

    You know, I think CB and I were talking (emailing) with Jon Speed about the magazine at the time, I will see if I can see if anything is worth sharing in that regard...

    The earliest recorded! Like the 1874 date and the 1876 issuance. CB's is the closest to yours, next earliest, and as others have said his came with the magazine. This was one of the last things we...

    Thanks for the pictures, hard to be sure of its placement or details, but rare enough to place it in the research thread with some question marks and a link here for context. Too few are recorded and...

    This is a problem dealing with beech stock trends, I encounter it often, washed out or muddled, it is probably one of the influences lessening the value of beech stocked rifles, - everyone likes...

    I agree with Rob and Mike, this is a righteous rifle and although not unseen in this condition, this is probably worth the $5000 stretch... BSW's are often in top grades, or approaching such grades....

    I modified the title a little, to fit in with the more recent formats, and "stickied" the thread.

    I like the subject, though at least one of you three need to decide who is to take direction and...

    Mike, it is actually very helpful for two reasons, although I had four pictures of it (from somewhere) I didn't know about the stock (the takedown in particular - though Suhl makers are TD without...

    I can't say I have a great connection, so i can't see these pictures completely, but it looks like a decent example as 1915's are hard to find matched to bolt and stock, and the acceptance is right...

    Of course the rifle is bad, much of the re-numbering is not period, but I would characterize his description as accurate but misleading "IF" he is suggesting this is period work. Assuming he is not...
