    Default Something interesting

    I'm going to post a complete thread on this rifle here in the next couple days but I'm trying to identify what Depot did the work. The marking is not the clearest so we would probably have to go by the type of Eagle they used and compared to others. But it became even more exciting this evening when I remove the butt plate off it. It has the veterans information on it and his shipping address!

    Still I'm so happy with this rifle and I thank Dave Roberts for telling me about it and letting me bid on that.

    Give me some time will post a complete picture thread on it as well it's one hell of a rifle!

    Pretty sure that's HZaJt20. Nice find.

    I believe your hundred percent correct Ryan that's the one that I kept thinking the marking resembled but I couldn't make out the marking 100%. Maybe under direct outside light might give a better image of the proof stamp.

    That one is damn cool on so many levels! I always try to remove the buttplate on new acquisitions in the hope of finding something cool but still no luck! Haha!

    It was kind of Dave to draw your attention to it, congratulations on this beautiful piece.

    Ryan is correct with HZaJt20, HZa Ingolstadt was responsible to inspect and maintenance Gewehre (t) - Polish rifles. If another HZa weapons workshop wanted to install a new barrel on such a rifle, the Polish barrel had to be requested via the HZa Ingolstadt.

    Regards,

    It sure was. First picture I thought what's going on here and then by the 2nd and 3rd I knew you'd gotten something interesting. Great grab!

    Wait.. You are able to tell what depot did the work based on the eagle shape or type?

    Excellent find Warrior. Tempts me to remove the buttplates on all of my rifles ;)

    Weldon Hawley Brudlos, La Crosse, Wisconsin. Born 11-16-1917, died on 07-08-1995, in La Crosse, Wisconsin.

    I could not find an entry for him for his service records, which means his records were probably destroyed in the great fire of 1973. However, this:

    T/Sgt. Weldon Brudlos
    381st Squadron of the Heavy Bombardment Group
    Aerial engineer and top turret gunner on a B-17.

    You are very welcome, but I have to correct a mistake, it's important.
    Ryan is correct with HZaJt20, HZa Ingolstadt was responsible to inspect and maintenance Gewehre (t) - Polish rifles. If another HZa weapons workshop wanted to install a new barrel on such a rifle, the Polish barrel had to be requested via the HZa Ingolstadt.
    I meant "Gewehre (p). For Gewehre (t) it was an other HZa.

    Yes, generally. Some are distinctive.
