I had a number of guys with Kriegs over the years let me take em apart and study em. That helps..to get a good close look at the type. My 1936 is like a K date, Simson or Erfurt..almost everything is marked but they can be hidden. Like the extractor. You have to remove it to see. That's part of the learning process. Knowing what/where/how to look to authenticate a Krieghoff. Lot of what you need to look for/at is internal. Requires a breakdown.

I would call 4951 " messed with " as it has some obvious issues but is mostly honest .
Lots of good parts on that one .

Sideplate looks to be the right one with internal stuff right .
The outside butcher job is pretty bad .

No idea on the hack job on receiver serial but it is indeed a HK receiver and the proofs - date look ok .

Barrel looks fine with the normal broken-shattered die looking proof .
Looks to be thru the blue as it should be .

Note the many different blue colors .
They should look like that .

It would have made a decent starter as it looks mostly honest but a bit pricey considering the butchered stuff .

With it's decent looking finish it would be a good one to take with when looking at higher priced ones .
I ALWAYS take a good one with when looking at a new purchase .


As I have posted before I have a weakness for crippled but honest HK's .
Yes I need therapy but my crippled 11795 with it's replaced barrel-receiver with EL9 proof on the right receiver is one of my favorites and only cost $2,385.00 .
Takedown lever is wrong and sear matches receiver .
Rest is honest and I do indeed have good HK parts to fix it but that aint happing here .
I like " Frankenkrieg " as she is .

There is a thread on it if interested .

Some pics of 4951 .
Note all the different colors .

Saftey bar should not be numbered but is properly proofed .

Wonder if a field armorer messed with it ?????

Grips do not have the mag release cutout butchered like so many minty spares .

Always thought the minty spares with this cutout too much or off center were rejects found in the HK works and " liberated " .

Post 622 in the serial thread shows a 1940 that is very honest looking with a couple major issues .

Do a forum search for HK 1905 and you will see a very honest lookins S date with both matching mags .
Wrong grips but a good one to study .

Do your homework as there is much info on these here .

Remember these wood grip S dates have many un-serialed parts .
EL2 proofed only .
