    Here`s one 1940 dated one. Did they produced this german like model throughout the war or stopped manufacturing during the war and continued then after the war again?

    Brehme, thanks for the clarification. I thought the 42 was a factory code/proof stamp. So they made these throughout the war?

    Here`s one made in Estonia for the Red Army. Arsenal was a prewar factory that made armament and equipment for the Estonian Army. During the occupation it carried on making goods for the Red Army. Some old Estonian design equipment were still made. But this one should be completely Soviet design/product. Dimas can clarify more I hope.
