    Dave,

    I am not a member of that forum...if there is a magazine-photo, could you move it over to our Boards.

    Always looking for more mag-photos for the Study.


    Best Regards, Pete...

    Thanks, Dave...always nice to add a new SN to the HK List...and even better a 1938-Date. And we have some ownership/location info. as well. Sweet.

    No report of an orphan Mag with that number.

    Pete ,

    Very nice folks to deal with and they are going to send me pics and the vets info that donated it years ago .

    Brown grips like it should have .

    They only asked to be accredited with it and I will see to that .

    The National WWII Museum 945 Magazine st New Orleans LA 70130

    It is on public display in the " Road to Berlin " display .

    This pegs the neat-o-meter for sure !!!!!!!!!

    Thanks Dave...always exciting when a "new" 1938-Date shows up.

    Boy...that barrel acceptance (or firing proof) sure was a mess. Maybe the E2 inspector did not think he needed to reorder new dies since the contract was nearing an end to his inspection works.

    Also...if he used a "dedicated" die just for stamping the much softer aluminum magazine bottoms, I think one die would have survived with little/no damage...but seems like he used that same die (or dies) on the harder metal of the pistols, too.
