    Really nice! I was very happy when I found mine and definitely one of my favorites. These use the last of three different screws with a larger head which explains the deep countersink.

    there was an older discussion here about the different type of screws used on the dou and dot KM bands. Slotted ,spanner and slotted spanner.

    At one point I had a small selection of screws not sure where they are now ???? The late dot44 that was just sold here had slotted spanner type I think ? Late 5 digit dot.
    there are also two different versions of slotted spanner as well.

    Just look maybe at the pic sticky or the "book" plenty of examples posted..


    Screws and bands seem to be the biggest issue with these late war rifles. Most were taken apart to be shipped back and I'm sure the screws weren't paid much attention as they at just wood screws not know 80 years later we'd be making a federal case out of wood screws and types...LOL


    Dot typically put a chamfer on the band to the screw head was more flush than dou and the rest.

    This Is not uncommon as most rifles are being held up in collections and we all have to wait for this stuff to be let go before good examples show up.. Chuck seems to be shedding most of his collection or just a tiny amount ? I have no clue the size of his hoard..


    He might not be happy with what it brought at auction but, that's the risk we all take running no reserve auctions.. Feast or famine there is not rhyme or reason to it.

    We all think it should have brought more but, at the end of the day it did not now it resides in another collection for some time to its passed to another... The circle of life.
