    Karabinerriemen dated 1928 K98b?

    Would like to hear your opinions about that sling. It seems exactly like a K98/K98A sling, but it is 8cm longer. Not stretched. Width and thickness is according to regulations. Any other slings with a length of about 144 cm out there? Thanks

Simply because it is marked with a Fl.number (Fl 52973). The FG42 does...

    Sad Paul Weyersberg police bayonet

    Hello, this bayonet was cheap enough to buy it although it is reworked, reblued, renumbered, re-everything. Probably a yugo capture. Since the screws are frozen, I can not get off the flashguard to have a close look at the stamps beneath. Is that marked stamp an additional police stamp or...
