Heil my German friends. Today I bought Ferlach, but can not determine year of manufacture of the gun 38 or 48? Can you healp me?
38 is only the Code for "Genossenschaft der Büchsenmacher".
The NPV stamp was only used from 1929 to 1937, a gun from 1938 must have the german eagle stamp, so I think its from 1948.
If you want to know it 100% you can ask in Ferlach, they will help you for sure!
>Yeah, but its not GERMAN, learn to read.
From were is this Eagle?
Where can I read it?
You mentioned only the missing german Eagle.
>a gun from 1938 must have the german eagle stamp
yeah but its the typical AUSTRIAN eagle, not the german one!
I would say its from after 45.
The Eagle is of shitty quality, but the pre-38 one seems slightly wider than the post-45 one and the one on OPs gun seems to be of the more narrow kind.
Also the wings are longer. Pretty sure its post-45.
Call them OP, im interested now.
