Article about: Hello all! I will post this again in this forum because i didnt got much views on the p08 forum and im looking for some infos : ) (just copy-paste) Just bought this, it is a all matching num
The V stamp is the letter block of the magazine. They produced them in batches of 10,000 I believe then after 10K went to letter blocks. Nice matching gun from what I see. How does the deactivation work and why would someone have done this? It was produced by Mauser btw. I think your small parts should be strawed like loaded chamber indicator, trigger, ejector etc...
After the S/42 codes I believe Mauser went to 42 code then to a 40-42 code then right into BYF codes. Please correct me if I am wrong. The G date S/42 was before yours and K date before that. I do not believe that they did the eagle and swastica stamps until the 42 code.
Is a nice looking example. Had a "42" stamped one made in 39 I believe so member Jerry is correct. Too bad it is deactivated but nice having matching parts. Don't see as many here in shops lately and all-matchers going for close to two grand often.
