It’s a worthwhile topic but one that lends itself to face to face conversation and comparisons of verified originals to verified fakes more so than a forum format IMO. A real understanding of fakes requires an understanding and eye as to how fakes are created and this is complicated by the facts that there are usually many ways that fakes are created for every variation faked (HKs, navies, death heads to name a few) and I assume most HK fakes began life as a Mauser, Erfurt or DWM base pistol therefore mother than scrubbing markings without leaving a trace of the work what machining, finishing and fake marking characteristics does one look for tip them off? Maybe I’m a simpleton but I find the skill required to fully scrub and re-mark every marking on a Luger and then refinish without leaving obvious signs of the work to be a very high bar for a very low motive.
