    Very nice! I have one question for the ordnance guys: I thought the Gretschen (Pzfst 30) came only with the slimmer headcharge and not the one we usually see on the 60 or 100 model. Anyone has some period pics with this type of headcharge? I'm not into these things, it's just a matter of curiosity
    Regards

    Hi Matt, here is one and I bet you have actually seen it before as it is a well known image but you possibly missed noticing the early 30m style sight trigger etc..

    Cheers, Ade.
