    Hi and welcome to the forum

    I've never seen a replica of one of these before because genuine ones can be found with a little bit of searching. Its most likely just made up of two odd parts that someone has put together.

    Thanks

    Danny

    Hi Danny, replica/fakes of these are certainly made.

    Hi PREDDY, my concern would be how rough the castings are. The WaA stamp also looks "cast in" and not stamped on to me?

    Have you seen the two orginals posted nere by Bill Grist? The overall quality is much better.

    Cheers, Ade.

    thanks for the fast reply, but the question is: this item could be phosphatate ("yellow sand" colour on the base) ???

    I might be mis-understanding you here: but "yellow sand" to me would be a painted finish. Phosphated is a chemically applied anti rust finish.

    To me, this one does not look like none of these finishes.

    But I think two diiferent types of finish might be found on one item. Late war guns can display this.

    Cheers, Ade.

    sorry..my english is not sooo good.. i'm an italian student.. the "yellow" coming from maybe a chemically process like Phosphate..because today..i've clean it with dreemel using a small metalbrush...but remain the colour..maybe if it's a paint go away..

    Yes, the colour will be chemically applied in this case.

    Your English is much better than my Italian, so don't worry

    Cheers, Ade.

    I cannot say for sure if this one is good or bad.

    You need more expert help than I can give, sorry.

    Cheers, Ade.
