    Regarding sawbacks, there is a scene in the made for TV movie "All Quiet on the Western Front" from around 1978 where a salty combat vet German (Ernest Borgnine) tells the fresh troops arriving in the trenches that if they are captured wit that sawback the French or Brit troops will really punish hm severely. It implies that the troops did this themselves although I have also seen a few issued weapons with the sawback factory done.
