Due to the recent traffic in the discussion of what constitutes the real features of a KM Radom , I am reposting these 4 characteristics which are found on ALL original Kreigsmarine Radom's , whether they have fleet numbers or not. They must have all 4 of these features and if not, drop, turn , and run to the nearest exit. Most, if not all the fakes will have one or more of these features missing. Serial numbers will run up to not more than A5600's.

It has been brought to my attention that perhaps some small amount of latitude should be applied when considering Number 1 characteristic in that not all original examples bear such close approximation to the vertical alignment of the take down lever slot as to what is shown.
