Less frequently marked than the .04's. Some, like this one, have a Crown/KM stamp on the grip. Most of the ones with a unit mark were S.B. ones. My ex Craig Brown collection Suhl consortium M79 has a S.B. mark.
This one, ex. Tom Knox / Howard Resnick, has a mark that I need to research to figure out if it's Navy or later.
This offering might have some good points but from what I can see..it has some very bad ones. The stock edges are VERY rounded. They shouldn't be.
The large steel washer & screw at the toe strap? New and in the white..no patina?
The holster has a shiny goo on it..shellack, wax or pecards? Cat/dog hair and other junk stuck all over it. Something gooey. The round ears on the rod sleeve top look like replacements.
The double magazine pouch looks Portuguese to me. No real distinct difference in the corners for stitching.
WORST of all the very rare carry strap has been butchered just below the belt hook.
What kind of goofy people wouldn't bother to show the inside of the holster or the mag bottoms?
Auction houses..goofy people.
Good points Jerry.The stock may have been refinished. Not sure whether the holster is German or Portuguese?
Mag pouch Portuguese.
A lot of money for a lot of question marks.
I have a Navy stock for sale and it is right as rain.
