I am putting this 1916 Erfurt for sale in the "for sale" section....unfortunately it has been re blued and has some mismatched parts....however it has 2 Matched mags....both with Erfurt proofs....but the 2 Mag bases seem to be made out of different types of wood!!??...yet they appear to be original.....were the bases made out of different types of KB wood in this era??...Thanks..

Goertz (and others) state that the grips and the mag bases were made of left overs from K 98 butt-stock production. So colour variations are likely to have occurred.

Peter....... I have 2 DWM rigs ....1916 & 1918 and in both cases the wood on the bottom of the mags is quite different.... just like yours.
Good to know Dave....Thanks....
