    Pat, Shoot me your email and I will send you a photo spread of this pistol. Mine has the Mauser hump and dimples as well as the thum defect on the front right of the receiver?

    My K date, #1503, has the usual sharp barrel band. The only other barrel markings are the o/37 accept. and the droop wing eagle.

    Tim and Jerry,

    I've always seen these stamps identified as test eagles. There should be 3 test eagles on K Dates. One on right receiver, nearest to barrel. One on the right barrel, near receiver. On very early K Dates the test eagle on the barrel is at about the 2 oclock position. Later guns have this eagle inline with the receiver proofs. One on the left breech block.

    I'll have to check mine tomorrow when I have gun in hand. I think my barrel eagle is at 2 o'clock also.

    Tim,

    another interesting mark on the barrel is the 0]37 stamp on the left side, near the receiver. It was done with a roll stamp, because it's on a curved surface. The die mark got the spacing on the umlauts a little long. It's the only 0]37 stamp on the gun where umlaut are so far apart.

    Pat,
    My barrel eagle is at the 3 O'clock position in line with the marks on the receiver. The O]37 is on the left side of barrel in the same position as yours.
