    A very poor attempt at a 4 rivet Deschler DKiG, it's suprising how many folk still get bit by these.

    Between this and the "SS" visor, perhaps best to avoid the auction altogether.

    Somebody is seeding these auctions with garbage and cashing in on the live auction atmosphere spending. Not good..

    I have done well in most cases at this auction but you are correct in that there are repros in there at times. It is a Sportsmens auction with firearms, hunting and militaria. The owners of auction are not experts in militaria but due point out if something is repro if questionable or informed by the people putting the stuff up for bid.

    Hi, not a good piece by a long shot, very poor quality all round. My experience of auction houses is that in the majority of cases they do not give a damn if something is genuine or not, their descriptions rarely state the words "genuine or original" just what the piece is "supposed" to be. A classic case of buyer's responsibility, and tough cheese when you ask for your money back. Leon.
